Write Notes

You may be having a crappy day, but you can still make someone else smile. This might turn your mood around and help someone who’s going through something difficult. A small note on your friend’s desk or a thoughtful message to your spouse will be greatly appreciated. Better yet, write a letter to yourself and read it on your next bad day. Keep this going so you’ll always have something nice to remember even when you think the world is against you.
