    Be mindful of yourself and others. It can be said that a lot of good comes simply from being mindful of yourself and others because you begin to see the effects that you are having on each other. A lot of the time we can devote lots of energy towards keeping each other in hell when it does not have to be that way. Through this kind of mindfulness comes compassion and freedom. And it also allows you to be there for others when they need you.

    Organise get-togethers. Particularly in adult life, when you do not see your friends as much as before organising get-togethers in the form of a day out or a charity event can be a great way to see everyone again and people appreciate the opportunity to see their friends, regular meetups can also be a great way to meet new people.


  • If you can, make environments better for people. Your home environment – particularly if you plan on having people around often – can be made great for people. Your work environment can usually benefit from being made a bit better too.
