Give a flower to a friend.

It doesn’t have to be from a florist. It doesn’t have to be from the local supermarket. Pick a flower from your yard, alongside the road or from a friend’s yard (with permission, of course). Present it in a beautiful vase or in a water bottle. It’ll make you feel good & your friend’s day will be brighter.

Surprise a waiter or waitress.

If you can afford it and you really like a server, occasionally leave an extraordinary tip. Even a couple of bucks more than normal will make their day.

Say good morning to a stranger…and SMILE.

Most people like a morning greeting. Put on a big smile and greet a stranger as you pass. Even if they don’t return the greeting you can be sure they will remember it.

Give up your seat on public transit.

If you see someone standing that looks particularly tired or carrying a lot of bags, give up your seat for them. Your feet may be tired when you get home, but your heart will be light.

Compliment someone.

It really doesn’t matter what you compliment them about – what matters is you took the time to notice something special about the person.

Ask to speak to the manager

Ask to speak to the manager when an employee does an especially good job. It will delight the manager to speak to a happy customer and the employee will shine.

Let someone go ahead of you at the check-out counter.

When you see someone with just a couple of items waiting behind you in the check-out line at the store offer to let them go first. This may add a couple of minutes to your wait, but will brighten that person's day considerably. Guaranteed!
