Have you ever been in a room full of strangers and you don’t know who to start talking to? In this scenario, you’re most likely to start saying “hi” to those with a smile on their face.

Just by smiling, one can trick their brain into lowering their blood pressure and reducing stress hormones, which in turn will boost your overall mood. Smiling helps you radiate a positive energy. Therefore it’s a good habit to be put into practice.

Saying “Thank You”

Saying “Thank You” is something that we all learn from a young age, that naturally turns into a habit for most people. Saying “Thank You” matters because it lets us build relationships based on compassion and kindness. And it makes us appreciate the blessings we have!

Not only is the act of saying “Thank You” a common courtesy and should be made a regular habit, but these two words have a profound effect on the people around us and how we get by in life. When was the last time you said “Thank You”?

Remove obstacles

Ever seen those rocks or fallen branches just laying in the middle of the road and causing a diversion? Instead of just driving by them, why not pick them up and move these obstacles somewhere else so that you can help ease the traffic flow and prevent an unwanted accident. It doesn’t cost a thing to move these obstacles out of the way, and is certainly something we should make a habit of.

The same goes with human relationships. If a person you know is currently facing an obstacle in life and you know how to solve that obstacle, or at the very least lessen the burden, do your part to help them because the positivity that we show unto others often does us good.

To ensure this wonderful planet remains as liveable for us now as it is for our future generation, start inculcating little habits of respecting the environment such as eliminating single-use non degradable materials, practicing the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) and turn off the electricity when not in use.
