Random Acts of Kindness

Much like Mindfulness and Gratitude, doing Random Acts of Kindness allows one to be in the moment and appreciative.Most of us can get caught up in our busy lives that we forget to pay attention to the little things.One small, seemingly insignificant act may not appear considerable at the moment, but may mean a great deal to someone who is having a bad day or feels down on their luck.Little things can mean a lot.The world would be a much different place if everyone took the time and effort to do something, no matter how small, for someone else every day.

Be Positive

In the world that we live in, it is sometimes difficult to be positive.The news can be flooded with negativity.Even reading your social media feed can be a downer.But we have to remember that pessimism is not good for your health.Negative thinkers have higher rates of depression.Pessimists have higher levels of heart disease and do not live as long as more optimistic people.Optimists also experience greater productivity at work than their counterparts.
There are only two ways to look at things:Positively or Negatively.But we have to realize that the phrase “stay positive” is much more than just wishful thinking.It is a matter of rewiring our brains.We have been conditioned to accept and expect negativity, and it does not have to be that way.When we experience failures, instead of taking it personally, we need to look at them as learning experiences.Nothing is a mistake if we can learn something from it.
