53 Simple Compliments To Make Someone 'Feel Happy' Today

First of all, I am extremely sorry for writing after so many days. I hope I didn't disappoint you! As you know I have been busy doing different things- just to keep myself insanely busy. Yes, I mean it. I have realized life is too short (unpredictable) to not do the things I love doing. So

We always wish to hear nice things about ourselves. Don't we?
Have you ever wondered; if a nice compliment can bring that sparkling smile on you face, how positive it can be for somebody else too? I believe one of the easiest ways to make someone's day beautiful - is by simply leaving them a genuine, well-deserving compliment. Sometimes it is also okay to create a cute simple compliment for someone; just to make them feel happy today. Lifting someone else's spirits can bring you joy too. I guess we need to sprinkle more kindness around us.

It can be really hard to be nice to someone who doesn't like you. But I believe few nice words for that person (say it or write it) can create some room for good feelings for each other. I always find it easy to write than to say it directly to someone.

Mark Twain said, "I can live for two months on a good compliment."

I totally second this thought. I can never express in words, how recharging a good genuine compliment can be!
So if you are anything like me; go ahead - and write few "good" words to someone today, and make them feel happy. Just to make your task easier, I want to share few of those nice magical words/lines that you say it to anybody:

1. You're so talented.

2. You make me want to be a better person always.

3. Wow! You are born with so many talents. And you inspire me so much to do different things.

15 Simple Things To Do That Can Make You Happy Today

My Daughter's Drawing :)
If I ask, "What makes you 'happy'?" 
You will probably have many answers. 
But what if I ask you; "Do you feel happy every single day?", "Are you a happier person in your daily life?"
We all want to stay happy all-the-time. Don't we? But life comes in between and our efforts to stay positive, to stay joyful takes the backstage. While some factors that add to our happiness are out of  our control, but still there's more hope towards improving our "happiness project" of life. Instead of waiting for the happy moments to happen, how about we create simple lighter moments- to ease out any kind of unhappy, sad, fearful emotions- that arrive us every now and then! 

There are so many factors that add up to your 'unhappy thoughts.' At first learn to avoid those circumstances (if you can), and make a list of your favorite things to-do. Next things to consider are the activities/actions that I'm going to list below. Pick the ones that you feel are suitable for you, and let go the rest,.
Doesn't matter where you are right now (while reading this post), try out these simple ideas to amp up those good feelings within you:

1. Look in the mirror and make all kinds of silly faces at yourself. Choose the one that makes you repeat. For me it's always my smile :) I love to flaunt my smile- even at the mirror.

2. If you are at work, walk to your manager, or to your immediate senior and ask for few minutes of their time. Discuss your ideas on how you would like to improve or add to team's efficiency- by participating, or by doing some courses that will also add up to your skills and efficiencies. Learn something new each day.

3. Make a statement- Go to the loo, and wash you face with nice cold water, and put on a darker shade of lipstick, and/or some scented hand cream, or mascara, or eye liner/kajal- anything that will make you feel wonderful . Let your 'good' colleague friends or peers talk about how good you look in that shade. P.S: It may happen that you won't get any comments, but you will always create some kind of attention for yourself :) 

4. Take a small break and go for a walk all by yourself and revisit your achievements, and the moments that made you feel special, and you felt like; you too belong in this world; because your contribution matters- at work, in your kid's life, for friends, for family, for your readers, and for your fans/subscribers.

5. Chat or send an email to the co-workers' or to the colleagues who helped you when you needed the most! Say a simple 'Thank You,' for all the help they offered you. We all need help some time in life. 

6. Invite your favorite person from your workplace for having a cup of tea or coffee with you-during office breaks, and discuss your weekend plans. Pick the things that you find exciting or you wish to do it for yourself or for anybody else. Usually any kind of 'positive happy' conversations can create happy thoughts and the required motivation instantly.

7. Read through your achievement/ well-done emails at-least for 5 mins; especially when you're feeling completely demotivated and stressful. Those emails will help you kick-start  your pending tasks- with great enthusiasm.

8. Quickly browse through your most favorite website/blog to see what new styles you can create, or what new post(s) you must write next.

9. If outside the house and not at work- (don't feel guilty to) treat yourself. Buy yourself some beautiful flowers, or gifts, or ice-cream, a nice coffee mug, or some kind of jewelries.

10. If at home- play hide & seek with your kids, or run with them, play with your pet, capture their lovely moments in the camera, water your plants, remove all the dried leaves or stems from them, and if houseplants- change their places to a more sunlit area, or somewhere they can get more light, paint your nails, apply some nice perfume or hair cream, organize your closet, try your favorite statement jewelries and take lots of selfies, read through your kid's journals/school works, iron your husband's shirts.

11. Dance or jump rope.

12. Take a long uninterrupted nap. Wake up feeling beautiful.

13. Go online and leave some positive happy vibes around the social media. Pick up some good blogs, websites, magazines and leave a happy comment appreciating the author's work. Make someone's day, because what you send out- comes back.

14. Plan for some new outfits/make-up/shoes/jewelry/hairstyle for the evening.

15. Watch something really really really funny, and laugh uncontrollably.

Now you have so many ways to make yourself feel happy today. Just get-up, get going, and be unstoppable. Take control of your happiness- amidst all kind of worries and fears.
Do let me know what do you do to make yourself feel happy instantly? If you have any more suggestions/ideas to add to the list in this post, please feel free to share with us in the comments below.

P.S. All the above drawings are done by my daughter Yutika. She is in grade one now. And she loves creating such cartoons. I'm one lucky mom to find such cute expressions/impressions for my blog  use :) You will see more of such drawings in future posts too. Hope you like them:)

If Your Closet Is Begging For A Change!

If you have been thinking lately about upgrading your wardrobe, or including some new pieces to your existing styles, then this post is for you. I believe many of us have had made some New Year resolutions to look our best, to feel the best this year- right where we are at present! And I believe you must have swept many of them under the rug- feeling frustrated and emotional about not being able to get the shape you wished for! But instead of feeling bad, how about giving your closet a serious style upgrade. Styles that can make you look wonderful, and just you.


Lately I have decided not to wait any longer (to fit into my old clothes) to get in shape, rather find styles and designs that can fit me, and will flatter my body. Therefore I have been busy upgrading my wardrobe. We often keep our "old" favorite clothes to get back in shape and wear then again, but sometimes that never happens- due to many reasons. So to avoid feeling stuck and miserable (with the body and look you have at present), try and refresh your style, and eliminate the closet doldrums.

.When we become more ware of the kind of clothes that suits our body, we can create more love for our body, and accepting the flaws becomes easier. Accepting our body as it is so very important!

Changes are always intimidating for me; especially if it is about trying out new styles, and new clothes. But I love trying out "different new" outfits; particularly the ones that I feel I will be more comfortable wearing it! I love to experiment new styles and prints.

 



If you wish to try some new collections, go out today and buy the designs that can define your personality (but don't spend too much! :);)). Styles that fit you well and make you feel confident and more stylish. "We are changing every day." Our body goes through several changes every single day, so we must learn to embrace and respect the change. Wear clothes that can speak about you, even without you giving your introduction.

We can never have enough of styles to add to our wardrobe. So don't feel anything, just try every small possible reasons to 'feel your best' all-the-time. If your closet is begging you for a change, go for it.

I learn a little-more every day about myself. And something I have discovered: "self-love and self-respect is the foundation of lasting joy in life. Learn to laugh with your flaws, and to grow and get better and better with your strengths.

I love simple yet unique styles. And I'm glad to have found few picks for my wardrobe upgrade. I'm always drawn to the colors, prints, and styles that can look good on me. Life gets so easier when you can find the exact styles you've been looking for! So start this year with a new collection of the designs and colors- you wished to have in your closet. Flaunt your best styles and create a signature fashion statement starting this year.

Do let me know what you think about incorporating new colors, styles, and designs into your wardrobe? What do you do when you feel your closet is demanding a change or an upgrade? I'm waiting to hear from you.

I wish you all a Beautiful Stylish Fashionable #Weekend :)
