3. Be generous: it’s contagious. There is no experience more uplifting than giving. At the base of generosity is compassion, which research finds has a direct impact on well-being. You know what’s cooler? Generosity is generative:The more you practice, the better you feel and the easier it becomes to be generous! Plus, it’s contagious. Your act of generosity very well might inspire someone else to act kindly toward another....Or get more connected.Try smiling at a stranger, tell a friend that you appreciate them, or tell a loved one how much they mean to you.

Remember. Real life isn’t all rainbows and kittens, but real happiness is always
available, even in rough times.
We often think of happiness as the side effect of some stimulus, either external(sensory) or internal(ego) But author Chade-Meng Tan says that happiness is readily available independent of either.
