Daily Challenge Monday Apr. 16, 2012
Emotional Health focuses on daily experiences related to happiness, enjoyment, sadness, and stress in evaluating overall well-being.
Say something positive to someone you talk to today.
How to do it
Be on the lookout today for an appropriate situation to say something sincerely kind or positive. Some ideas: "I love you," "You're right!" "I really appreciate that," or even "I'm sorry."
Why it matters
Everyone wants to hear that they are appreciated and understood! However, sometimes it's easy to let situations pass by without saying something positive. Sharing how we feel helps build strong, supportive relationships. Not only that, speaking sincerely and from the heart can help reduce stress and anxiety - for you and for the recipient of your kind words.
A sculpture based on a stamp? There's one in a Philadelphia public park! American artist Robert Indiana created a love-themed stamp for the U.S. Postal Service that later spawned a three-dimensional installation of the same design.

I did this today. Had an disagreement with someone at work and they clarified what they actually meant to say and I acknowledged this and thanked them for clarifying, I apologised for taking offence then explained why I'd taken offence. We're still on good terms.

That's nice, with coworkers pecking at each other nowadays & turning work environment into a battlefield :@ I said to a janitor today that he has to participate in the presidential elections this week (in Egypt) by voting, 'cause its our first free presidential elections & every vote counts in pushing our revolution a bright step ahead :D Guess that's a positive word ;)

Someone I met a few years ago was so good at doing this. I noticed that she always had something nice to say to everyone she talked to. I realized what a big difference a simple thing like that can make in someones day and decided I was going to make a conscious effort to do it to.
