7 Things to Say Every Day

A re you as happy as you wish you were? If not, remember that with the positive things you do for other people you collect you karma points, which in return create positivity in your own life.

Doing little things to make other people happy improves your happiness and your words are one of your greatest tools. By thinking about what you say every day and making an effort to be both positive and sincere you can create a huge wave of positivity.

There are certain inspiring things that truly happy people find themselves saying to others all the time. Try to make an effort to say a few of these every day for a week.

They won’t just improve your mood. They’ll trigger a chain reaction of positive reactions that will make you feel happier, too. You’ll be amazed at how the positivity you create improves your happiness.

‘I am happy to see you’

How cool is that? Expressing to another human being that simply being in the person’s presence creates a positive feeling. Whether you’re telling someone that you value his opinions, or just that you think she’s good company, this opener creates an interaction on a very high note. How can that not produce some level of happiness in the other person [and in yourself]?

‘Thank you’

This is truly one of the most powerful, underrated phrases in the English language. It packs a heck of a punch, encompassing positivity and impact in two little syllables. Gratitude leads to greatness. It can literally turn what we have into more than enough, chaos into order, uncertainty into clarity, and it brings peace.

‘You’re welcome’

Not ‘yep’. Not ‘no problem’ or ‘no worries’. Say ‘You’re welcome’. The spotlight of being thanked or complimented or praised can make you feel uncomfortable. Don’t spoil the moment or the fun for the other person. Make eye contact and say, ‘You’re welcome. I was glad to do it’. It dignifies the other person’s gratitude. It acknowledges that yes, you did do something worthy, or nice, or positive for someone. And you did it because you believe that s/he’s worth it.

‘I’m sorry’

We all make mistakes, so we all have things we need to apologize for: words, actions, failing to show support… Say you’re sorry. But never follow that apology with a disclaimer starting with ‘But…’ or any statement that in any way places even the smallest amount of blame back on the other person. Say you’re sorry, say why you’re sorry, and take all the blame. No less. No more. Then you both get to make a fresh start.

‘Can you help me?’

When you need help, regardless of the type of help you need or the person you need it from, just say, sincerely and humbly, ‘Can you help me?’ You’ll get help. And in the process you’ll show vulnerability, respect, and a willingness to listen and learn, which, by the way, are all qualities of a great leader. And are all qualities of a great friend.

‘I love you’

Say I love you when you are feeling romantic. Say it when you are happy. Say it when you are sad and even when you are mad. These three words can fix, soothe and connect. Say ‘I love you’ often. Say it before it’s too late. Just make sure you mean it. If you say the words while you are really feeling them the other person will hear the difference.


The danger is that sometimes people who make other people’s happiness their priority can wind up doing so at the cost of their own happiness. This word is your fail-safe. We all know some people who take advantage, or who simply aren’t going to be happy no matter what your efforts amount to. Two little letters, and yet so powerful. Most important, they demonstrate that you care for yourself, which is a key to caring truly for other people. Use it when necessary. You’ll find that the most positive and happy people you interact with respect you for doing so.
