LITTLE things make a big difference and add brightness to an otherwise average day.
Here are six ways to help cheer up everyone’s day.
Spread the love online
Help a family by promoting a local business you love on your Facebook page. It’s hard to build a small business so if your local mechanic or fruit shop is doing a great job, a short post with their name and contact is a lovely way to say “Thank you”.
Words speak volumes
Tell someone they are doing a good job. Stress means that we are often quick to criticise and slow to praise. Take time to tell someone you appreciate their effort, be it the way the girl in the supermarket packs your shopping or the security guard who smiles when he sees you.
A little goes a long way
Gifts do not need to be costly; it’s the thought that counts. So, buy the soap, shampoo, rice, cookies or socks that come with a “buy one, get one free” promotion and give the free gift away.
Use small coins in your wallet to buy a child an ice- cream. If you have a stack of small coins, treat the whole family. And don’t forget yourself.
