Everybody likes to smile, right? Here are ways to make someone smile, and in doing so you can make the people around you happy.

  • Share an interest — you might find a connection or make a new friend to do hobbies with.
  • Do a good deed to help someone else.
  • Introduce yourself to someone new to make them feel loved and welcome.
  • Surprise a friend with something they enjoy.
  • Give someone a high five (or maybe a quick hug to a friend). I tried this one out myself, and the other person’s smile was ginormous.
  • Do silly things or make funny jokes.
  • Give someone a kind compliment.
  • Invite someone over to hang out or have lunch.

These are all ways that you can make someone smile and possibly make a new friend.
