3 simple tips:
1. Smile with eye contact to as much people as you can during your day.
2. Make honest compliments to every person you interact with.
3. Hug as long as people don´t feel uncomfortable.
Do this and you will experiment a new kind of joy.

I strongly believe that being kind can give to someone what hard work can't.

(actually from my Niece - Christina):
I give so freely of my time and resources not because I have extra, but because I remember how hard it is to have nothing. EVERYONE has something to offer, and yes even those of us that barely get our bills paid on time. If you lack money or time to spare, you always have kindness to share.
Being kind to one another costs nothing.
