Happiness Hack #22 – Be Kind

 Practicing Random Acts of Kindness Make You Happier

Practicing kindness connects us to people in ways we might not expect as we get surprised by other people’s positive reactions to what we are doing. Helping others helps us find a sense of meaning, and helps us see how fortunate we are, and improves our mood. Physically, Acts of Kindness release serotonin in our brains and in the brains of the people who watch our Acts of Kindness. Kindness makes everyone happier.

Pick one day a week to practice Random Acts of Kindness. Set a goal, like 5 in one day.

  1. Tape money to a vending machine
  2. Spend $5 on a friend
  3. Give up your cab or your seat on the bus to someone who seems to be having a bad day.
  4. Open a door for someone or hold the elevator.
  5. Buy a friend a Coke or a coffee
  6. Bring donuts to work

My Passion is helping people become successful and happy. I have found that many people want to be successful but just don’t know how. More importantly, people want to be successful because they feel that reaching some success pinnacle will result in them becoming happy. The research and my experience has shown that just the opposite is the case. Success does not lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success.
