Living Simple | 7 (small) things to make somebody’s day

7 Small Things to Make Somebody's Day Today

1 | When you’re at the till, in a taxi or at the coffeeshop, ask the cashier/barista/taxi driver how their day has been so far.

2 | Surprise your housemate’s with a cup of coffee. And not just a cup of coffee, one with foam, a small biscuit, some latte art (?) and the whole sha-bang.

3 | Invite your friends (or family) over for a fancy dinner with starter and dessert. Time to test those Pinterest recipes!

4 | If somebody does something great or looks fabulous that day: Don’t just think it, tell them.

5 | Wash all the dishes.

6 | Write a letter, call, meet up on a regular basis.

7 | That sweater your friend really loves and always compliments you on when you’re wearing it? Give it away without asking for money, just like that.

    YES about washing all the dishes! Best way to cure flatmate wrath – just wash them all and you only feel annoyed for like 2 seconds and then it’s done and everything’s fine again.

      Yes, that’s it! What is it about washing the dishes that is so annoying? It only takes about 5 minutes :D

    I really love your lists and how they encourage you to be a better person. Not just for yourself but for your environment/people around you. Because no matter how we think that it wouldn’t matter it actually matters, these little things.

        Oh yeah, I usually do some of these without even noticing now. I always smile to cashiers or waitress’ and try to tell something to make them smile. I used to get free Americano’s in my old favourite coffee shop. I wake up early and cook breakfast, wash the dishes from the night before if I’m staying at a friend’s. They always wake up surprised in a good way. I always say when I find someone beautiful and watch how their face lit up. So I think these things make one more not less. Being nice is, well, nice. It’s usually make me feel better too. That’s why I find these posts amazing. They remind me how I actually change things without noticing. So thanks for the posts!
