Whatever task gives you the most anxiety in the coming day, do as soon as possible. The faster you get it off your plate, the faster you can enjoy the rest of your day.
Make that call, appointment, or pay that bill. You know you’ll just stress about it, so get it over with. Just do it and it’s done.
Complimenting others will not only make the receiver feel great, but it will also benefits the giver too! There are studies and science to back up these claims. And why wouldn’t you want to make someone else’s day?
Science Explains Why Compliments Feel so Good
It is no surprise that people like when others are nice to them. A compliment, good grade, or positive work review can even cause people to perform better, as studies (and probably you) have found.
While it can be fun keeping up with friends, family and the Kardashians (jk), it can also cause a lot of undue stress. A Pew Study found a correlation between social media time and stress. Psychological Stress and Social Media Use discusses the pressure to post, comment and like statuses and pictures.
These technologies are said to takeover people’s lives, creating time and social pressures that put people at risk for the negative physical and psychological health effects that can result from stress.
There is also a toll on one’s psyche being aware of other people’s stressful life events. So unplug and take the stress off for a day.
“The closest thing to being cared for is to care for someone else.”
― Carson McCullers,
We don’t always take the time to tell the best people in our lives how we feel. If a person or people take part in making you a happy person, let them know. A simple message would be good for you and them 🙂
