Of­fer an en­cour­ag­ing word!

Stud­ies show that com­fort­ing some­one is of­ten just one com­pli­ment away! The Har­vard

Busi­ness Re­view re­ports that 88% of peo­ple as­so­ciate kind words with a feel­ing of be­ing val­ued, and that re­ceiv­ing a com­pli­ment au­to­mat­i­cally boosts their mood and helps en­hance re­la­tion­ships.

Heal with a sim­ple hug!

Never un­der­es­ti­mate the heal­ing power of touch. A re­cent study at the Touch Re­search In­sti­tute in Mi­ami showed that when pres­sure re­cep­tors on the skin are stim­u­lated, stress hor­mones fade and the “feel good” hor­mone oxy­tocin floods the brain, fos­ter­ing feel­ings of trust in both the hugged and the hug­ger!

hare smiles!

Smil­ing warmly at a stranger can in­stantly help them feel bet­ter! Stud­ies show that when we see an­other per­son smile, “mir­ror” neu­rons in our brains are ac­ti­vated, which trick us into think­ing we were the ones who smiled, caus­ing us to feel the same joy and com­fort!
