Practise Random Acts of Kindness
This involves doing five kind things in one day and then writing about them. See steps below. When you have completed your acts of kindness write down what you did and how they made you feel, for an extra boost. Chances are you will want to do it again. Research shows this practise makes us feel happier because it makes us think more highly of ourselves and we become more aware of other positive social interactions, which also increases happiness.
