Wanting to improve the world can be a beautiful and exciting mission; however, if you aren’t sure where to start, it can feel lofty, intimidating and scary. While some positive change can be sweeping and large scale, oftentimes it is the little changes and small acts that can lead to a more significant impact. If you are looking to improve your life and make the world a bit of a better place, start with these small changes to your daily life.
Kindness is the key to change. Caring about others and making a concerted effort to be kind can become infectious, passing positivity through each interaction. Before you know it, you can help be a part of major change, spreading wholesale kindness that spreads compassion and care through an entire community.
Pay it Forward
Your kindness can start in individual interactions that trigger ripple effects. Paying it forward through small acts can prove incredibly effective. Whether you are paying someone a compliment, leaving a big tip or paying for someone after you in line can be a great way to spread that positivity, pass along good vibes and ripple out.
Give Your Time
Many people are unenthused about volunteering because they have limited time; however, many sites require a minimal commitment that is consistent. You can find a charitable cause that excites you and donate just a few hours per week. Volunteering impacts the community it serves, but it can also often impact the volunteer more.
Not all of these small changes need to happen immediately. Signing up to be an organ donor can have a monumental impact on someone’s future and require little from you in the present day. Your body, once you no longer are able to use it can be used to save one life or even many.
If you are looking to make the world a better place, you do something with small changes in your daily life. Not only can this improve the community around you, but some of these changes can have ripple effects that you never could have anticipated.
