The Article has originally published by me (Me? Twitter: @RahulSingh_I) for the awareness week on Google Plus. You can check out more about it by visiting the page “People For People“. I and some more young people over on Google+ started the idea to create awareness on topics such as depression or Cyber bullying. At times, providing you with Life Hacks or just something to make you smile. Do check out the page, if you’re on Google Plus.
While, this has only been a humble start, it’s been a great experience for some of us working as a team. Hopefully, we can do good things. You can too. Comment your views. But, read this first. And, SMILE!
There’s nothing better than seeing someone smile – a person you care for, even better if you’re the reason behind it. All of us can’t be Charlie Chaplin. Having a great sense of humor is not everybody’s cup of tea, neither all of us can be the “hero” who brings a smile to everyone’s face. But, we can all try. Presenting to you 25 very simple ways to bring a smile to a person’s face.
1.) The easiest. Crack a bad joke. Extraordinarily bad. I’d give you an example:
Q.) What did the Shirt say to the trouser?
Okay, not this bad. Moving on…
2.) Gifts. An unexpected gift is a sure shot idea to make someone happy. Gift your best friend tissue papers. Bring pizza home, gift me a million dollars. Gifts always work.
3.) Give compliments to your loved ones. Something as simple as “you’re a dear friend/sibling,” anything complementary.
4.) Smile, say hello to strangers. A random smile at a stranger can make someone’s day. People need good vibes, be the one to provide ‘em.
5.) Say “Thank you” for the little things done right. We always complain when loved ones mess something up, but never thank them for the millions of times they do it right. Be grateful. Say, “Thank you!”
6.) You’ve tons of virtual friends, if you think someone needs a smile. Give them a reason. There are lots of great GIFs, cat pics, memes and everything on the Internet. Forward something with a personal touch.
7.) One for the kids. Gift them chocolates, play games with ‘em. Tell ‘em stories, however horrible the stories are. Give a kid some time, it would just not make him happy, but give you peace and happiness as well.
8.) To add to 7, discover the kid within you. Give yourself attention and enjoy your moments. You don’t know how many people will smile just because you’re smiling.
9.) Play pranks, a successfully played prank will make everyone happy, a failed one will get people mad with laughter. Something as simple as telling people, there’s a bomb in the house will work, although you may risk being kicked out.
10.) You should never look back, buy if you do, pick a tale from the past and see the magic. Start as: “You know dad, your favorite watch you lost in 2004. You yelled at me the day before. So, I flushed it to avenge. Ain’t it funny?” Okay, next…
11.) Do a random act of kindness. There’s no greater good in the world as doing something for someone, selflessly. Be kind, the world needs it. Let someone feel good.
12.) Ask your friends over for a game on Weekend. Whatever sport you play, everyone needs a break, see to it that your pals get one.
13.) Crack jokes on your wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend, or best friends, these jokes always end up in laughter. [PS: See to it that the targeted person doesn’t see it. Stay safe.]
14.) Forgive people for their mistakes. If someone regrets it, don’t make ‘em feel down. Forgive and smile at the lesson both of you’ve learned.
15.) Tell your significant other that you love ‘em.
16.) More to gifts. Give an anonymous gift to someone. Something, a loved one always wanted. Keep it anonymous. Let the person live in imagination.
17.) Laugh out loud at something funny when things go quiet in a family gathering, etc. Chances are people will catch up soon.
18.) Be nice to waiters/ waitresses. Give ‘em kind words or tips. Thank them.
19.) Write something for the people you love. A little note or anything. Draw a picture for them. Send ‘em pictures from the past. Talk/chat to people around you. Show them their worth. Make the day better for them in every little way you can.
20.) Help elder people. Whether you know them or not. Help strangers with carrying bags or holding the door. “Be remembered for good.”
21.) Lend something to a friend/sibling, they know you only share with people you trust.
22.) “Good mornings”, “Good nights” are underrated. Everyone appreciates having people care for ‘em. Sometimes, it’s cool letting them know you’re there.
23.) Laugh at yourself, others will follow suite. I forgot to mention, I’ve some grey hair showing up. Save me God! Don’t laugh you fool.
24.) Play along with good stories. Some tales about you are worth being incorrect. If only, they make people laugh, and don’t harm anyone involved. Go another step ahead, and tell a good lie about yourself. By the way, I found 2 gold biscuits under my bed.
25.) Tell a good joke. Example:
Q.) What’s big, round and is pretty HOT?
A.) Sun. Okay.
