Week #95 – Hard at Work? Stay Cool!
Greetings Happyness Tribe — and Happy Friday!
A classmate of Rob’s who works for the post office put this suggestion on Facebook: “If you feel like doing something nice today, leave a bottle of cold water for your mailman/lady🌞”.
I thought that was a pretty cool idea — and a super easy way to Spread Happyness!
And then I got to thinking — what are some other “cool” gestures that could Spread a little Happyness to the casual connections in our lives?
The winter holidays are a natural time to leave a little something for your mail carrier, doorman, landscaper, bank teller, stylist, or garbageman/woman.
But what about the rest of the year? Especially during the height of summer when it’s hot, stinky, overcrowded — or maybe even a little slow?
Your Happyness Challenge for the Week Ahead: Help someone else stay cool! Leave some cold water for your mail carrier. Provide an umbrella or pop-up tent for someone working in your yard. Bring some good old fashioned ice cream sandwiches or novelties to your bank, stylist, mechanic, or coworkers. Offer to make that 4 o’clock frappucino run!
And if you need more ideas — I polled a few friends a got some additional suggestions:
- Carry $5 Starbucks cards to give to someone who goes above and beyond. (Thanks, Scott!)
- Give free cupcake/yogurt/ice cream cards to someone who needs a pick-me-up. (Thanks, Heather!)
- Scroll through Stephanie Jones’ daily #givingchallenges on Instagram or Facebook! (Thanks, Stephanie!)
What other ways can we help someone else stay cool this week!
