Uplift with Kindness and Compassion

Uplift is one of the Building Blocks of Positive Shift. We can uplift ourselves with positive music, videos, quotes and thoughts. And we can uplift others with positive words, genuine compliments, acts of kindness, and simple gifts of appreciation. We achieve uplift with compassion and kindness for both ourselves and other people.

Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind. -Henry James

Uplift Yourself

Use Positive Self-talk and Positive Affirmations. Affirmations are phrases that describe the results of adopting a positive belief. They can help change negative self-talk to positive when repeated frequently. They often begin with “I am…, I can…, I wil…” Examples: I am loved. I can breathe deeply and fully. I will practice compassion. They are: simple, clear, specific, positive, first person, and present tense.

Watch an inspiring video at Goalcast or Simple Truths. Or a TED talk. Or a dance mashup.

Listen to uplifting music or a highly unscientific happiness playlist. Add music to your daily routine with a soundtrack to manage the day. Access emotions with music, and create a playlist of upbeat music.

Uplift Others

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou

I will never forget a day when I was feeling pretty low…or the person who gave me a compliment that lifted me up.
