IT PAYS TO BE NICE
Positive things can happen in your r life. You’ll be in a better mood, become ome more empathetic, inspire othersers and sleep better at night. Nice girls always finish first. Mala Khare, counselling psychologist from Counselling: A Map for Emotional Wellbeing, counts the ways.
You’ll become emotionally healthier. Being nice sends the message that people are worth it, and it also makes you a more welladjusted person.
People will be nice in return. When someone is nice to you, you can’t help but want to return the positive gesture, and this makes both parties feel good.
You will gain friends. There is no room for self-centredness when you are nice, and people will naturally be attracted to you.
You become more resilient. Being nice to those you don’t like – or who don’t like you – shows you can rise above your negative feelings.
You will breeze through stress. Nice people are less stressed as they are less likely to react negatively to situations, and are less aggressive and bad-tempered.
