Feel Good: Create Positive Experiences: 6 Ways to Harness the Power of Kindness

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

Leo Buscaglia, US author & lecturer (1925 – 1998)

Too often we underestimate the power of kindness.  Today’s Smile Igniter is to harness the power of the little acts of kindness that bring smiles to you and those you interact with today.  Implement a few of these kindness harnessing tips and watch the smiles grow.

A touch.  There is energy in touch.  Share your positive energy with someone today by sharing a hug, a gentle touch, a held hand, or a kiss.

A smile.  Smiles are contagious, infect those around you, make eye contact with all you pass today and share a smile.

A kind word.  Let those you care about know you care today.  An “I love you”, a “Thank you”, a “That sweater looks good on you, it compliments your eye color” could be exactly what someone needs today.

A listening ear.  Listen without judgement, pre-conceived notions, or providing advice.  Listen with kindness and ask what the other needs from you today.

An honest compliment.  A sincere compliment will brighten the day of any receiver.  Keep the compliment sincere, specific, and without expectations.

The smallest act of caring. Every day presents opportunities to make life easier for another person.  Be on the look out of those little things and make one of them your thing.

Today’s Smile Igniter:  So much of the time it is the littlest things that make the biggest impact on our lives.  Today harness the little acts of kindness for they have the potential to turn a life around.
