There’s evidence that kind acts and words often have a bigger positive impact than we might suspect.
Think back to a time when someone paid you a small, out-of-nowhere compliment and you’ll know this to be the case.
I came across The Appreciation Effect recently, and I love the concept and rationale behind it: you write a note of appreciation for someone and invite other people (friends, family, etc) to do the same. That person then receives these notes as a sort of email campaign, giving them a daily dose of good vibes and love.
The site is free to use (you can make a donation if you want), and it’s exactly the type of project I like to see on the internet (this is what modern communication tools should be used for).
Here’s a link to the project if you want to learn more or start an appreciation campaign for someone in your life: https://theappreciationeffect.com/
