Improve Your Mental Health

Juanita Price Presents – Wellness Wednesday

Compliment Someone:

Giving someone a simple, sincere compliment takes just a moment; makes you both feel happy and proud; and gives you a healthy boost of positive energy in the process.

So go ahead. Say something nice to someone each day. You’ll be glad you did!

Giving compliments to someone not only makes the recipient feel good, but it can be good for you as well. Studies indicate that showing kindness and giving/receiving compliments have some of the following health benefits:

  1. Decreased stress levels
  2. Lower pain levels
  3. Increased immunity
  4. Increased productivity
  5. Increased happiness

Since compliments (and smiles) are free, take just a moment, and can have such a positive impact, why wouldn’t you make this a daily habit? To successfully complete this challenge, log 12 compliments this month. But to reap the real rewards, you may want to give many more!
