“Happiness is not a goal…it’s a by-product of a life well lived.” ~  Eleanor Roosevelt

Start to spread little seed of happiness by being kind and in turn you will become happier yourself. If you are happy then others around you will be happy also.

Spread happiness to everyone around you by 

1. Being kind to yourself. 
The same thing applies here. Be kind toward yourself. Really. You can’t give what you don’t have, right? So go ahead and do the things you love - dance, sing, or paint all you want. Just enjoy. Then go and spread some happiness around you.

2. Smile. 
This is the best method ever to make your own day and spread happiness around to others. Don’t wait to be happy, think of something good in your life, smile, and see what happens.

3. Surprise! 
Surprise the people you love with flowers, small presents, kind words, help, a hug, or a genuine compliment.

4. Be a hero. 
Notice and help someone around you, a stranger a friend in need......

5. Say something good about someone or something. 
Be genuine. This makes you feel good and it’s much better than gossiping, since you’re spreading positive words and thoughts with the people around you. Win!

6. Make an effort to have good thoughts. 
The thing with our thoughts is that they become words and then actions, so it’s important we observe them and choose them wisely. Our thoughts are like flower seeds. They can either spread happiness or sadness. The choice is ours!

7. Listen with all your attention. 
It sounds so easy, yet really few master it. Give your full attention to the person you’re talking with. It can change your whole view of the person and vice versa. That makes two happy people!

8. Learn a skill. 
Then teach it for free. It could be anything from languages to cooking. Make it your one-person charity organisation. Just don’t tell anyone. Have fun!

    A smile definitely goes a long way. Whenever I'm feeling a little blue, I try to plant a smile on my face and before you know it someone will smile back at me and then another and another and my mood has drastically improved. I also like to be kind and genuine to people. Seeing them smile because of something I have done is the greatest feeling. Thanks for sharing. #teamIBOT.
