30 Easy Ways To Spread Good Vibes

Random acts of kindness are one way that we can help lift those around us. Being compassionate not only benefits others, but is good for your own health. Doing these random acts of kindness actually improves your mood and increases relationship satisfaction. Research on altruism and compassion show that depression is reduced, mortality is delayed, and life satisfaction is significantly improved. The good news is giving to others and showing kindness aren't hard things to do. I've put together a few simple yet impactful ideas to add to my to-do list, and I hope you will too!

Here are 30 ways to be kind and spread good vibes:

  1. Smile at whomever you pass.
  2. Pay for the person behind you at the coffee shop.
