Be a Nice Human
Today, for most people, it’s easy to be unkind. We can do it behind a computer screen, or from the safety of our own homes. We also don’t have to deal with the real-world ramifications of being nasty. When you can’t see someone’s face and they are just a handle on an app or an avatar on social media, it’s easier to treat them like garbage. Thankfully, not everyone is willing to settle for this new normal. There are many people out there who choose to be kind instead. They make random acts of kindness part of their daily life and actively look for ways they can help others. Why? Because they know that being nice is one of the best things we can do as human beings – and not just because it makes the recipient feel good but because it has positive benefits on the giver as well.
It’ll Make You Feel Good
Being nice is one of the easiest ways to make yourself feel good. When you take a moment to sincerely do something nice for another person, there is no doubt that it’ll put a smile on your face. And that’s awesome! There are few better ways to lift your spirits than by simply doing a good deed. Even if you have a bad day and everything goes wrong, you can always make it better by doing something nice for someone else. It doesn’t have to be something grand or huge, it can be as simple as paying for someone’s coffee, making a donation to a charity, or sending a thoughtful card. Being nice will not only help you feel better but it’ll also make the recipient feel good. In fact, it’s often the small things that have the biggest impact. Something as simple as smiling at the person behind you in line or holding the door open for someone can make a big difference.
It’ll Make the People Around You Feel Good
When you choose to be nice all the time, it’s like a reset button. It’s a positive force that can change the mood in a room and make everyone feel better. In return, they’ll start looking for more kindness and returning kindness in their lives and you’ll be the one who starts it all.
It’ll Make the World Around You Feel Good
Being nice isn’t just about making the people around you feel good – it can also make a bigger difference. Being kind is such a simple act, but the impact can be huge. When you make a decision to be kind to everyone around you, it can spread like wildfire. When you actively look for ways to help others, you create an atmosphere where everyone around you is free to do the same. It’s a ripple effect where one nice act leads to another and another until it’s hard to keep track of whose spark started it all. The simple act of being kind can lead to a domino effect where it impacts not only the people around you but also the people they interact with and so on. One act of kindness can inspire thousands of others.
It Can Be Super Easy
Being nice is easy! We just have to choose to do it. It doesn’t take a lot of effort or a lot of time. It doesn’t cost anything to be kind. You don’t have to be rich to be nice. You don’t have to have a certain skill set or certain knowledge. Being nice is something we all have the power to do. If you find yourself not being nice, all you have to do is pause, take a second, and then actively make the decision to do something nice instead. Being nice doesn’t have to be a huge thing that takes a lot of effort. It can be as simple as smiling at the person behind you in line or holding the door open for someone. There are a million ways to be nice and you can find one that works for you.
It’s Not Easy to Start
The only downside to being nice is that it’s not always easy to get started. Once you make it a habit, it’s easy, but sometimes it can be hard to break out of the unkind habits you’ve formed in life. However, once you get the ball rolling, it’ll be easy to keep it up. Being nice is addictive. The more you do it, the easier it’ll be to do it more. There are little to no downsides to being nice. Being unkind has a lot of negative consequences. It can ruin relationships and reputations. It negatively impacts your mental health and can lead to depression and anxiety. It can cause you to lose out on opportunities. It can make other people feel bad and can make the world a worse place.
Being nice isn’t a small thing. It’s a big choice. It’s a decision to make someone else’s day brighter even if it doesn’t affect you in any way. It’s a decision to make the world a better place even if it doesn’t benefit you in any way. It’s choosing to actively make the world a better place instead of doing nothing at all. It’s choosing to make someone’s day better even if you don’t know them or will ever meet them. And it’s choosing to make the world a better place even if it doesn’t directly benefit you. Being nice is a beautiful thing. It doesn’t take a lot, it doesn’t cost a lot, and it can make a huge difference.
