According to Mark Twain, the best way to cheer yourself up is to cheer up someone else.
Do you know someone who needs cheering up?
- Try listening to them. What a pure joy it is to have someone let us vent our frustrations! Don’t offer advice, don’t offer to help. Just listen!
- Token gifts – flowers from the garden, a bag of M&Ms, a new magazine, a sincere compliment – can make someone smile. (FYI – a new color of nail polish works for me.)
- How about a joke? A corny one can work just as well as a great joke.
Make it a great day – for you and for the people around you!
