Have you ever been on the receiving end of a special gesture or experience that changes your mindset?
The truth is that we all want to be appreciated since it elicits the ideology that our existence is relevant to someone else. It creates a world where we can feel cherished and valued while making a difference in someone else's journey! The appreciation between each other allows one sole entity: humanity itself --a simple word yet loaded with meaning.
According to philosopher William James, “the deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.”
It doesn't matter who your significant other is; you can easily make them feel extra special.
Here are 5 simple ways you can make someone feel appreciated and loved.
1. Hug Them at Any Time.
There are plenty of gestures that change through time. However, hugs will never go out of fashion. Hugging is universally comforting, and it can make us feel healthier and happier.
Scientists have shown that a hug is more than just an inner force you feel when holding a baby.
A hug can enlighten someone’s brain associated with stress and reduce it, increase heart health by improving circulation in the body, and alleviate pain or nostalgia altogether!
So next time there is someone who needs to be made happy (or put at ease), give them this medicine: A HUG!!!
2. Give Them a Gift As a Special Gesture
Thoughtful gifts can go a long way in terms of showing appreciation and love. Don't worry - you don't have to get stressed about how big it is! The essence comes from the detail, which shows how important they are to you.
Have you ever had a surprise delivery arrive at your home or even an unexpected gift from someone? Yep, we know that feeling- you're blown away, right?
We can assure you that is one of the best feelings that you can make someone experience. The person will know that you put your heart and soul into it, so take this action at any time!
3. Lend an Ear and Listen.
When someone you love is going through a hard time, just being there for them can be the cure for their pain.
Also, taking out negative feelings creates relief! Whether your friend wants to cry or scream and vent all of his worries with you--let him do so while listening attentively without judgment.
At Attitude Is Free, we believe that the journey towards overcoming challenges can be difficult, but when you have support, everything becomes possible.
4. Applaud Them with Their Qualities
There is nothing better than receiving admiration for the unique qualities every one of us has. Whether it is confidence, positivity, discipline, or even fearlessness, applauding a person for having these can cheer them up and feel special.
When you come across someone with a unique personality, make sure to give them some positive feedback and energy! This will help motivate and inspire the person even more!
5. Plan an Adventure for Just the Two of You
An excursion around town, a cycle through rural areas, or even a climbing expedition in a majestic peak can create memorable moments.
As you travel, your soul experiences a new and refreshing perspective that can truly rejuvenate any person.
We live in a fast-paced world with many tensions alongside, so the next time you want to make someone feel relaxed and distracted from stress - take them on an adventure!
Imagine what our world would be like if everyone could find time for one action that makes someone feel better. It doesn't have to be big or fancy, just there when they need it most!
We are all on a constant quest for meaning in life. While the mission defines us, appreciation brings out our best selves and transcends all else- it's what makes each day feel worth living!
Why not spread some love and appreciation today? This will make others feel extraordinary, which in turn makes you happy. It’s a win-win!
