Today is about making someone else feel good. And really taking the time to think about how you feel when you are giving someone a genuine compliment. For me, I know when I make someone else feel happy or good about themselves that it changes my outlook in that moment.
Usually when I compliment someone it makes them smile and that makes me smile.
On the other side of things, have you ever received a compliment from someone completely unexpected? How did it make you feel? I know you felt good and all tingly inside, don’t lie ;).

Mindset Reset Day 5 – Compliment Someone
Today’s Affirmation: I can see beauty in everyone. Beauty isn’t always on the outside and I can see the beauty in each person.
Today’s Action: Just compliment someone. It doesn’t have to be an award winning compliment, but it does have to be genuine.
Who is someone you admire and you haven’t told them yet? Get out of your comfort zone and tell them why you admire them or appreciate them.
One thing I notice a lot are eyes, I love a good set of eyes.
How do you feel when you get random compliments? I always have a smile for at least an hour after I get a random compliment. It makes me feel all happy like kittens and daisies!
And because I like to back things up with facts, according to this PLOS study, the lead professor in this study said, “To the brain, receiving a compliment is as much a social reward as being rewarded money. We’ve been able to find scientific proof that a person performs better when they receive a social reward after completing an exercise.”
Imagine giving that to someone with a simple compliment. They’ll get an instant pick me up and be more productive. Win win 😉
