If you’re having one of those difficult days, there’s nothing like a deliberate act of kindness as a quick cure. Yes—right in the middle of the workday.
Think of someone (besides yourself) who could use a little attention. Maybe a co-worker, your friend, your mom. Shoot them a text or give them a quick call, just to tell them you’re thinking of them.
This act of kindness takes you out of yourself—taking the anxious focus and pressure off you, and replacing something negative with something wonderful.
In the giving and receiving of kindness, this 30-second cure impacts 2 people in a positive way, and makes both your worlds a whole lot better.
Try it and see.
