Being nice to others is actually good for you!
Yes, it’s true. When you are helping someone, you’re not only bettering their lives, you may also be improving your own. Studies have shown that we are happier when we are kind. Being kind boosts our mood and is a factor in reducing stress. When we are kind to others, it causes our brain to release endorphins, the chemicals that give us feelings of joy and high spirits. It also boosts serotonin, the chemical that gives us a feeling of satisfaction and wellbeing.
Everyone likes to be in the company of a nice person. They are a joy to be around, they inspire others and make the people they are with feel good about themselves. It’s easy to find simple ways to be a nicer person. Be punctual- it shows that you have respect for someone’s time. Don’t be critical – always try to look at the brighter side. Smile and laugh – a genuine, heartfelt smile or laugh demonstrates optimism, happiness, and an overall pleasantness that is contagious. Say please and thank you, apologize sincerely, pay compliments.
Niceness is contagious. Give it a try.
