Re­flect and be kind to oth­ers

Shape (Malaysia) - - Be proud of your shape -

Pam­per­ing your­self doesn’t al­ways mean hit­ting up a spa. Do­ing some­thing as sim­ple as spend­ing a few min­utes re­flect­ing on your best qual­i­ties, clos­est val­ues, and proud­est achieve­ments (a prac­tice known as self-af­fir­ma­tion) can also make you feel kinder and more sym­pa­thetic to­ward your­self. In a study from Carnegie Mel­lon Univer­sity, peo­ple who per­formed a sim­i­lar ex­er­cise went on to do­nate more money than those who didn’t; they were also more will­ing to help pick up items that fell off a shelf dur­ing the ex­per­i­ment. So, spend some time go­ing back within you for a boost of good­will!
