Sometimes the intention to be a better person is there but we aren’t quite sure where to begin. Some people fear that it may take several steps or perhaps they have to purchase something, so they push it to the back of their mind.

However, you can contribute to society being a better person without having to buy or make anything. All it takes is the intention of knowing you want to contribute to the greater whole, and putting it into action. Sometimes the smallest things are the things that add up to being the biggest. Here are some of the most effective and easy ways to start making a difference today.

Smile More

The simple act of smiling at someone can make their entire day. Next time you pass someone on the street try to envision yourself as a superhero. Imagine that your super strength is spreading happiness and a sense of belonging to others by shooting them with a smile.

Now go out there and smile at everyone you see and return a smile to everyone you come across even if they are frowning. This simple act of kindness can warm someone’s heart in ways you never imagined. You can’t always be sure what people are going through. Sometimes a smile is exactly what they need.

Let Someone Go In Front Of You

Next time you are driving down the street or standing in line for something, rather than feeling yourself become overwhelmed with impatience or focusing only on yourself, try doing something selfless.

Let someone go in front of you rather than rushing ahead. If everyone did something like this just once a day, the world would be a much more tolerant place with much less rushing and stress!

Call Someone You Love

Sometimes we forget to tell the people we love the most that we love them. Try making an effort to call someone you love today and tell them how you feel!
