“Practice random beauty and senseless acts of love.”
We all get consumed by our own lives sometimes and that is totally normal. The weekly work grind can totally demolish our perspective on things that are happening around us. Our to-do list becomes our platform for our everyday activities and when we stray from those items we can often feel like we are unfocused. Get that idea out of your head right now! Check out the following tips for committing random acts of love and boosting your day to day life!
When acts of love are mutually shared they are best felt.
1. Be in the moment
When you are talking with someone and they are telling you a story, be in that moment – actively listen! I can completely tell when I am talking to someone and they are listening or they are thinking of something from another planet. To work on this skill of being present and in the moment try asking questions about what the other person is telling you and use eye contact to connect.
2. Try being random on purpose
Okay, this tip is definitely the most fun. Imagine your day with bursts of randomness! When I think of spending time with my boyfriend for example, it is those random things that are the most memorable.
For example, say you are just going on a walk and your significant other pulls out there phone, plays your favourite slow song (that they know from being in the moment when they talk to you) and asks you to dance. Okay I know that sound’s like The Notebook but come on, how easy is that!
Do random things to show the people in your life that you love them and think about them. Write them a post-it with a funny message, send a friend you haven’t talked to in awhile a message, send someone flowers! The smallest acts of love like this can have the largest effect.
3. Be the vector and carry love with you
If you are not feeling the love from someone, maybe you have to be the one to initiate! Carry some extra sunshine with you in your pocket, you never know when someone will need some extra loving.
4. Check your own ego justification and love
The tough thing about social media these days is that we often compare love to likes. Check your ego at the door because the amount of love that you give and get is not directly correlated with social media likes. If you love yourself and realize that social media is a platform for idea exchange versus self validation, you will be so good!
5. Make this a learning experience for guidance
By sharing love we teach others that it is okay to be open and honest. Tell the people you love that you love them! By you doing this you are simply teaching others that it is a good thing to hear and a great thing to say!
