If there was ever a time that we needed to spread positivity into the world its now. After the emergence of the Coronavirus pandemic, we all faced a tough year. As life begins to revert back to a new normal, we find ourselves once again interacting with one another on the street, in a shop or at your local bar.
It is important that we do our bit to spread kindness and positivity into the world to help keep spirits high. Here’s what you can do to help.
Do you like someone’s outfit? Maybe you think their hairstyle looks great? If you have these thoughts the best thing to do is tell them! Giving compliments is a great way to spread positivity and the best part is it can make people feel great about themselves. There are plenty of positivity-boosting compliments that you can give. Take the time to do some online research to gain some inspiration.
The great thing about giving compliments is it also helps you to feel good. You can gain a great amount of satisfaction from knowing that you have given a kind compliment to someone. This can also do wonders for your self-confidence.
Smile More Often
The best outfit you can wear is a smile. Smiling at others can really encourage people to turn their frowns upside down. A smile is often contagious, and we can’t help but to smile back at someone. It’s an effective way to add a little bit of positivity into someone’s day. It is important to remember that we all have our bad days but the smile that you give to a stranger as you cross the road can really help to brighten up their day and make them feel better.
Lend A Helping Hand
Often, life can feel like it is getting on top of us. With personal commitments and busy working lifestyles it can lead to people feeling stressed and burnt out. In these situations, it feels like a weight has been lifted when you are lent a helping hand. Do you have a friend who is busy with work? Offer to go around and help them with their laundry, or why not take them a cooked meal? Not only is this a kind act but it can also help them feel appreciated.
You can learn more about how to lend a helping hand through various online blogs and articles. Sometimes the smallest acts can go a long way and they are sure to help your friend/loved one de-stress and feel more positive.

Perform Random Acts of Kindness
After a quick Google search you will be inundated with ideas of random acts of kindness. No matter how big or small they may be, a random act of kindness can really make someone’s day. Some ideas include paying for someone’s drink at a coffee shop or helping an elderly person cross the road. This is something that a lot of us may be hesitant to do over fears of rejection. However, you will mostly find that people are overwhelmed by your offering and will be grateful for whatever it is you have chosen to do.
That drink you bought in the coffee shop could turn someone’s worst day into their best. After the Coronavirus pandemic, many of us realized the importance of caring for others. Now life is slowly turning back to normal, it is important that we take time to perform these random acts to help brighten up people’s day and spread that all-important positivity.
Give A Gift
Everybody loves the feeling of receiving a gift. So, a great way to spread some kindness is to give a gift to someone that you love. The beauty of this is there are no rules when it comes to gift giving. It can be as small as a box of chocolates or as big as a new pair of shoes.
If you know someone who is going through a tough time it can be a good idea to help them out by giving them a gift that is useful. For example, if a friend is ill, you can gift them with a self-care hamper full of medicine, face masks, tissues, the list goes on! Not only does this show them that you care but it will also help them to feel better.
We all come to a point in our lives where we need a little encouragement. We can go through periods of self-doubt where we might not feel good enough but the thing to remember is that it is totally normal. This feeling will not last forever and before you know it, you’ll be faced with a new day and ready to take on the world.
You can find plenty of words of encouragement online if you don’t know where to begin. Use them as often as you can to uplift those around you and encourage them to be the best version of themselves, they can possibly be. You may even find the words of encouragement rub off on you and help you to also feel great about yourself too.
Share What You Are Grateful For
Most of us use social media platforms to share snippets of our daily lives with others. A great way to spread positivity is to use these platforms to spread gratitude and kindness. Don’t be afraid to share the things that you are most grateful for and encourage others to do the same. If someone is having a bad day, they may read your post and feel like there mood has been uplifted. It can help people put things into perspective. You’ll find that most people sit there and reflect on what they are also grateful for.
Social media can be covered in negative comments and at times it can be a horrible place to be. However, learning to use your social media platforms in a positive light is a step in the right direction. It also influences others to do the same.
In a world where you can be anything – be kind. Spreading positivity is something that we should all try to do from time to time. As well as having a positive effect on others it can also have a great effect on you, changing your life for the better. Although some days can be more difficult than others there is no better feeling than making someone’s day. When that behavior is then reciprocated you will understand just how great it feels to be kind.
