How to Be a Nicer Person

Whenever you do something nice for someone, you’re spreading joy, kindness and making the world a bit brighter.

Internally, being positive and treating yourself and others with compassion can make all the difference in how you feel. Kindness from a stranger can also go a long way in making someone else that’s down feel a bit better.

How to Be a Nicer Person

What does being a nicer person look like?

It’s being more caring, compassionate, and selfless. We share kindness with others through kind acts such as a nice word, a smile, or an unexpected deed or planned surprise.

Signs that you’re already a nice person:

  • You feel compassion and empathy for others.
  • You give people real compliments.
  • You listen to what others have to say.
  • You’re an honest person.
  • You’re kind to others unconditionally.
  • People enjoy your company.

How can I be a nicer person:

  • Don’t be critical, be supportive.
  • Smile and laugh.
  • Have interest in others, ask questions and listen to them.
  • Be able to laugh at yourself.
  • Be polite and respectful to strangers.

There are some people who experience mental health issues such as anxiety or depression that may struggle being kind because of the way they may be feeling internally.   

It could be difficult for someone struggling with a mood disorder to have the positive vibes flowing at all times. Be aware that everyone is on their own journey. Don’t let someone else get you down, but be understanding that some people may have a personal issue; or might also just be having a bad day which we all have from time to time.

Some more ways of how to be a nicer person every day

  • Look for opportunities to be kind.
  • Be kind to yourself.
  • Be kind to the people closest to you.
  • Show grace to others.
  • Decide to be kind.

You can be affectionate with others you appreciate to show them that you care. It could be a simple handshake, a pat on the shoulder, or a hug.

Final Thoughts

It can be so easy to get lost in our own problems and stresses. But we all have our own problems.  You think you have bad problems until you hear everyone else’s issues. 

Just being mindful of that fact alone is showing you’re thinking compassionately, and can be the first step to being a nicer person.

So start making small but effective changes in your daily life to feel better about yourself and the world around you.
