Carry out an act of kindness
Although you may already carry out random acts of kindness, or are involved in charity work, you could be more intentional about it by dedicating a day each week or each month to helping someone in your neighborhood. Whether it's popping in to visit a lonely senior for 30 minutes, or helping a neighbor with their young kids, by caring for the needy in your local community, you'll be creating a truly happier neighborhood.
