We all need a little more love and positivity in our lives. Below we offer 10 easy, no fuss ways to spread more love. The best thing is that these are all free and take very little time to do. Remember it's the intention behind our actions that creates our reality. So if you try even one of these with the intention of spreading more love and joy that is what you will receive back from the universe.
1.) Smile at a stranger without expecting a smile in return. If you really want a challenge smile at someone who looks grumpy.
2.) Smile at yourself in the mirror, and mean it. Sounds cheesy but you deserve your love too.
3.) Mentally repeat the words "love", "peace" or "light" for one whole minute. Or say all 3, it can't hurt ;-) The vibration of the words will raise your spirits.
4.) Forgive someone for hurting you. Write down the person's name and a brief sentence explaining what you're forgiving and burn it. Remember people are always doing the best they can at any given moment.
5.) Stop thinking about what you have to do next, and bring your awareness back to the moment.
6.) Breathe deeply for one whole minute. The breath creates space inside your being which is more room for love to enter.
7.) Make eye contact with a stranger and mentally say "thank you". This is an interpersonal meditation that shows gratitude to your fellow human beings.
8.) Imagine that everyone you see is your version of God or the Divine and treat them as such. In this way you see everyone as they truly are.
9.) Close your eyes and imagine that your heart is emitting rays of light. All you're really doing is imaging the heart the way it was meant to be used.
10.) Write down 3 negative experiences and then list 2 positive lessons you learned from each of those experiences.
