—The ones that not only bring happiness to ourselves, but also bring happiness to others!

1. Do a random act of kindness for strangers every day.
Even just waving to one another — since our smiles are masked — can help someone who might be experiencing hardship feel a bit more hopeful. Your kindness will bring you happiness, too. It’s a win-win.

2. Find a cause you care about and discover ways to take action.
You can donate to a charity, become an activist, virtually volunteer and much more.

3. Write letters or send cards to people who feel alone.
A hand-written letter is so much more personal than an email or text. Think about some of the people in your life who need to feel less alone, and aim to write them one letter a month.

4. Make time to learn.
So much is happening in our world. If you feel a bit overwhelmed and want to educate yourself, the best way to stay in-the-know is to carve out time each day to spend reading the news or books, listening to podcasts or audiobooks, or taking an online course.

5. Express gratitude.
Expressing gratitude has been scientifically proven to improve mental and physical health, help you create more relationships, increase your self-esteem and enhance empathy.
