Can you write something depressing?

With these 10 love gestures you can make the world a little more beautiful

The news is depressing, work is stressful and everyday life is routine. The world is not that bad, but on some days, nothing just wants to be beautiful, fun or just run smoothly and function. How nice would it be if someone were at least attentive and nice to you? If you long for more love in life, it is best to start with it yourself. Because who gives love, gets love back. With these small gestures, you can make a big difference in the lives of others!

call parents

When was the last time you phoned your mother, who lives 4 hours away by car? We live in such a fast-paced, hectic world that we often neglect the really important things in life. Call someone you haven't seen in a long time and take half an hour to just do that.

make compliments

The easiest way to spontaneously bring joy to other people is to give compliments. There are so many things that deserve a compliment: the radiant smile, the new hairstyle, the beautiful dress, the clever idea, the successful project. There are no limits here.

Keeping the door open for someone

It seems so irrelevant, but it has an effect that should not be underestimated. If someone is a few steps behind you, keep the door open. Your neighbor, who is carrying two shopping bags and holding her son by the hand, will be very grateful to you.

Give a good tip

The catering industry is a tough employer. Not every guest is friendly and mistakes also happen to the best waiter and cook. Those who give a good tip not only put a smile on the face of the dedicated staff, but also show appreciation for the service and the strenuous work.

Nice comment on social media

The web is full of fake news and hateful news. Be it Facebook, Instagram or Twitter: Nasty trolls lurk everywhere and can quickly ruin users the whole day by writing mean comments. To counter this, you can specifically write positive comments on posts that you like. A nice picture on Instagram, an inspiring slogan on Facebook or a smart thought on Twitter: Sometimes posts deserve more than just a like.

Let someone in front of you in traffic

Traffic slows down, everyone is annoyed and nobody is making any headway. Exactly at this moment it seems absurd, but let the old gentleman, who has been waiting a long time to change lanes, go ahead. One car more or less doesn't make a big difference and so at least both of you make progress, albeit slowly.

Get socially involved

Once you concentrate on the essentials, it quickly becomes clear how well we are doing. A roof over your head, food on your plate and warm clothes in winter. Not all people are doing so well, but everyone can make a small contribution and improve the situation for many people. Be it a cash donation, a donation in the form of clothing or if you find the time, you can also get involved in a non-profit organization. If you are not sure where you can best contribute, you can also get mediation with the help of tatkräftig.org.

Take on each other's household chores

Living together as a couple, family and also as a shared flat requires household tasks to be distributed. Some take over what needs to be done on the spur of the moment, but many have set tasks for which they are responsible. Just take on something you don't have to do and give someone a little free time. A priceless gift.

Holding hugs

When someone hugs you, hold the hug until the other lets go. You never know how other people are really doing and who knows how well the other person can use a hug. Incidentally, this also applies particularly to children.

Presents for people who have to work on Sundays and public holidays

A chocolate Santa Claus for the bus driver, an Easter bunny for the gas station attendant, a generous tip for the supplier and a big smile for the young cashier who works on Christmas Eve. Spreading joy is not that difficult.
