Next time you step out of your home, take with you the resolution to make another being happy. So leave a little something for a stranger and make their day a lot brighter. Leave an encouraging note on the park bench, or a sweet something in your favorite book in the library. Be the sunshine of somebody’s day. Stop thinking about what you can take from the place but what you can leave. Leave an imprint of yourself in someone’s life. Be a part of a stranger’s happy memories, it’ll feel incredible.

Visit nursing homes, old age homes, orphanages and rehabs and talk to them, make them laugh, give them hope. The rich, with their cheques, can help them survive but the kind can make them truly happy. Make it a point to visit any care giving home atleast twice a month and spend time with the people there. Listen to their life stories and share yours. In a world where you can be anyone try and be someone’s solace.
5. THROW COMPLIMENTS AROUND.
Use your words to bring people up and not shove them down. Give Compliments, lots of them. You like the girl’s shoes, say it to her. Tell the guy walking on the sidewalk that he is having a fantastic hair day. These small appreciations can actually be the highlight of someone’s day. Don’t hesitate to tell people how amazing and beautiful they are. Imagine how immensely happy it’ll make you if some random stranger complimented you on your new dress that cost a fortune. Be that random stranger. Be the reason someone feels great about themselves.
6. BE UNDERSTANDING.
Remember how pissed you were when that guy cut in front of you in that line? What if next time you stop for a minute and try to understand that they genuinely had a reason or some emergency. Don’t judge people and once in a while let people go before you. Get aside and let them rush ahead. It is okay. A minute or two might not make much difference to you but it could be worth a lot to someone else.

14. HOLD THE DOOR, PLEASE.
Always hold the door for people coming behind you. Don’t be the fool who lets the door bang on people’s face. It will instantly make people happy if you spend few seconds in holding the door so they could enter. Also do that for lifts, try and accommodate people in the elevator instead of just thinking about yourself.
15. SHARING IS CARING
Share your food. Share your umbrella when it is pouring. Share your clothes. Share your happiness. Share smiles. Have an enormous heart that never gets tired of giving.
16. BE PATIENT
Be patient with people. Let them take their time while crossing the road. Wait for friends who are late. Wait if somebody is clicking a picture without disrupting them. Let the car that is honking bloody murder go first. Don’t frown or get angry but be kind to them and show them what patience is.
17. PAY FOR SOMEBODY
Happiness trebles when shared so once in a while when you are enjoying something, make it exciting for someone else too. Pay someone’s bill for food or groceries or give the toll for the car behind you. Pay someone’s library fee or pay for a ticket. Getting free things is the world’s most unadulterated joy.
18. BEFRIEND PEOPLE
Say hello to the girl who sits all by herself in the class. Make conversation with the guy who comes to the park by himself. Never let anyone feel lonely when they are not alone. Be open to new people and new friendships. Make good conversations and just talk to them. Be kind.
Give people happiness by giving them time, food, clothes, blood, hair and even your organs. Donate all that you can. Give people a piece of yourself and see them glow with happiness. Always be ready to give up things for the greater good of the society.
