This week, we have a fun and uplifting challenge: everyday we will give a genuine compliment to at least one complete stranger!
This challenge is awesome because it has a triple-whammy effect.
First, you’re giving the person you’re complimenting a little boost. Seriously, who doesn’t like to receive a compliment!?
Plus- you never know what someone is going through in their life...a small compliment could mean the world to them.
Second, speaking kindly to someone else will not only lift their mood.... but will elevate YOURS as well.
And third, the very process of looking for people to compliment will open your eyes to the incredible people around you–and will actually help make you more mindful as you go about your day.
Plus, it’s fun. :-)
When was the last time you had a positive exchange with someone in the grocery store or at the post office?
Don’t overthink it. A simple, "Your shirt is really cool or what a nice smile!" will go a long way.
If this gets you out of your comfort zone, then it’ll be even BETTER for you!
Are you up for the challenge this week!? Let me know... please keep me posted throughout the week with your experiences!
