Don’t Compare Yourself to Others

“Your life is unique, so don’t measure your own worth by comparing yourself to those around you. Even regarding yourself as better than your peers is detrimental to your happiness, as you’re fostering judgmental feelings and an unhealthy sense of superiority. Measure your own success based on your progress alone, not that of others.”
– Anonymous

You have your own path in life. You have your own personality, experiences, talents and passions. When you stop comparing yourself to others, you will be happier and more successful.

Treat Everyone with Kindness

885Kindness is not only contagious; it has also been proven to make you happier. When you’re kind to others, your brain produces feel-good hormones and neurotransmitters like serotonin.

Also, being kind allows you the opportunity to build strong relationships with others, fostering positive feelings all around. Treat everyone you meet today with kind words and actions and see just how good you feel.
