So how do we experience more of the good stuff and its body-tingling benefits?
Well, that’s easy. First of all, be more kind. Care happens to be one of our greatest currencies, and when we invest this way, the returns are priceless. Evidence reveals that the more someone receives and observes kindness, the more they will be kind themselves, which leads to a rewarding, upward spiral of generosity and love in relationships. Secondly, even though our modern day lives may be complex, finding happiness is simple. We all want to feel connected, seen and understood – and this is where our love language comes in to play. Each of us has preferred ways of showing appreciation, establishing union, and communicating our desires. This may be through turning towards others with bids for connection, acts of service, uninterrupted quality time, words of affirmation, physical touch and/or thoughtful gifts. These gestures not only help us engage with others, it’s also how we get our emotional needs met.
