What boosts you? We all have something different that boosts us up each day, whether it be coffee, talking to friends, going to the gym, or the countless other things it could be. However, here is a different way to look at it, what do you do to boost someone else up? Most of the time, we are asking ourselves, what boosts me up, but not very often our we asking the latter question. I think it is very important that throughout each day, we try to be a positive source, someone that make someone else immediately better just by talking to us.
Doesn’t that sound great? And guess what, boosting someone else up almost always ends up boosting you up too, so it is really a win-win situation the way I see it. Now everybody is different, especially when it comes to what makes them happy, but here are some pretty general ways to make someone’s day.
There are many different ways to make someone smile with coffee. You could buy them a cup of coffee, you could make them a cup of coffee, or maybe you could take them to a coffee shop to have a nice chat with them. And if they don’t like coffee, find out what they do like, maybe tea or cocoa, and get them that instead.
So this one doesn’t work in every situation, only if you have access to where they spend most of their day. But let’s use a coworker as an example. Maybe you’ve noticed that one of your coworkers is a bit down recently and you want to cheer them up, or maybe you just want them to know how amazing you think they are. All you need is a sticky not and a pen, write down something kind about them, and stick it on their desk or drink, or wherever would be best for them to find it. I promise that it will light up their day!
A lot of the time when someone may not be having the best of days, it really help if they just have someone to talk to, they either want a listening shoulder or just a good conversation to distract their mind. Either way, make it clear that you are there for them both to listen and talk to. I know when people have done this for me in the past, it has helped significantly!
I would love to hear about the ways that you boost up your friends, family, coworkers! Please share!
Have a lovely Thursday!
