How to Make Someone Happy

"The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up." - Mark Twain



It's me again Franz , I heard from one my relatives that if you want to feel happy, Make an effort to make other person happy. Di lahat ng tao kaya mong i please but making other people happy is one of the noblest acts you can do. Whether you want to banish their blues or simply show them how much you care or love them,Di naman lahat ng tao, Doing this will not only make them feel important but in return you will feel happy aswellUse these following tips and techniques to make someone happy.

1 Practice random acts of kindness. Call, text, or email the person just to say that you’re thinking about them. Send a hand-written letter, silly cartoon, or cute photo to them in the mail; so few people use snail mail nowadays that getting it is a real treat. Pick the person a flower, help them carry their groceries, or offer to do something big like help them move. You can also do this on someone that you just met.

2 Be emotionally supportive. Everyone wants to know that they are loved and appreciated. Encourage them to follow their dreams, especially if no one else will. Find a way to tell them how much they mean to you, even if you have to do it casually or inconspicuously. (Ex. When introducing this person to a friend, say, “This is my best friend, So-And- So. You’ll love him – he’s the absolute best!”) Be caring and compassionate in all your dealings. Most importantly of all, let them know then they’re being self-destructive. If they’re in a bad relationship, making poor life choices, or squandering their talents, find a gentle way to discuss it with them. Whether or not they listen is up to them, but at least you took the time to be honest.

3 Cheer them up when they’re down. Smile at them and, if you have a warm relationship with the person, hug them. Do something silly like building a blanket fort, hosting a sleepover, or making silly putty – especially if you’re “too old” for such things. Put together a little collection of adorable pictures, videos, and gifts and dare the person not to feel better after taking a look.

4 Be trustworthy by showing that that you can be counted on daily. Keeping a big promise every now and again isn’t nearly as meaningful as keeping your end of the bargain on day-to-day stuff. Make honesty a policy. Even white lies can feel like little betrayals. Make sure your actions always reflect your words – and vice versa. Assuring someone that you care and then neglecting them is far more of a letdown than being up-front about your unavailability.

5 Make them laugh. Laughter relieves tension and is wonderfully contagious. Inside jokes work really well, especially if it is something only between the two of you. If you aren’t feeling inspired, find something funny online and email it to them. You can also do something silly like pick a dandelion or blade of grass and give it to them, saying, “I got this especially for you!” or "I picked this weed just for you!"

Be a good listener. One easy way to make somebody feel appreciated and validated is to simply hear them out. Try to understand their thoughts and be in their shoes. Ask thoughtful questions, don’t interrupt, and if you don’t understand something, say something instead of playing along.

7 Spend quality time with them. Show that you not only care, but also enjoy their company. It doesn’t take much: start by turning off the TV, sitting down, and talking. You can also invite them to get out for a while by going bowling, swimming, or something else fun and active.

8 Give a gift. Take the time out to pick out a special gift that is suitable for the person. The more thought you put into the gift, the better it is from the point of being an expression of positive energy. Be sure to include an inscription in the gift wherever possible, and make the message one that is uplifting and spiritual.

9 Make them feel appreciated. Compliment them sincerely by telling them something you love about them. Write a thank-you card for all the little things they do. (Be specific; it’ll let them know you were really paying attention.)
