Make the World Better Today

 Want to make the world a better place?  You can.  Whenever you feel like you, as only one person, can’t make a difference, remember this study. There is a chemical in our bodies called Oxytocin.  It’s a good chemical.  It makes us feel good, decreases stress and, generally, makes us happy.  From Psychology today:  When we hug or kiss a loved one, oxytocin levels increase; hence, oxytocin is often called “the love hormone.”  Oxytocin is the hormone that underlies trust. It is also an antidote to depressive feelings. A study was done that measured the amount of oxytocin in people that do a random act of kindness to another.  As you might expect, the person who receives an act of kindness gets a boost in Oxytocin.  Makes sense right?  But the person who gave the act of kindness got an equal boost of Oxytocin as well!  Very cool. Now here’s the best part.   An observer, a person that had nothing to do with the act, but just saw the act of kindness, got an equal boost in Oxytocin as well.  That is great.   You can make a difference.   But how?  What can you do?  How can you push kindness out into the world?  With words.  Here are just a few things that you can say to people TODAY that can do that.  These are things people never get tired of hearing.   1.  Thank you.2.  You look nice today.3.  You are a hard worker.4.  I appreciate your help.5.  You make this place better.6.  You make me want to be a better (fill in the blank).  7.  My day is better when you are in it.8.  You make me laugh.9.  You make me think.10.  You are talented. And these are just a few.  Make people feel loved and appreciated and you make the world better.  Feel free to give us more.  What else can you say each day to make others feel special?   Go.  Do that. Make sure you never miss an update!  Sign up for our VIP newsletter here.  We would appreciate that!
