Being nice to people is something that makes us happy from inside out. Believe me, it’s not any type of personality, but it a kind of choice that you make for your own happiness and for others.
But is it possible to be nice to everyone you know? I would say yes it is but only if you will stay away from the toxic people around you.
There are very few good heart people who will think and care about you. So, to be nice every day you need some patient, start thinking about other people, and follow some good habits.
And if you are the one who is also struggling to be nice to people you know and even you don’t know, here are the top 35 ways that you need to follow.
Here are 35 Ways to be nice to people and stay happy.
1. Be punctual
Being punctual is something that shows how you care about other’s time. Don’t make people waiting for you. Be on your time always.
2. Don’t be critical
Trust me it doesn’t make you smarter, it only devalues you. Instead of cruising people, understand and mentor them. Always remember the one famous quote “When someone trying to bring you down, it only means you are higher than”
3. Be less judgmental
Think before you judge someone. Before judging another person, make sure you know all about him/her. We all are different and have different ways of thinking, doing and behaving.
It only makes you heavy and dense, if you still find it hard to let go, here is the meditation to letting go of Judgments.
4. Keep Smiling
Did you know that a smile actually works as a mood booster? When we smile, it activates neural messaging in our brain and helps you and others feel better. Smile is actually attractive and healthy. It can even turn your enemies in your well-wishers.
5. Laugh more
There is no better medicine than laughing. After a good laugh, everyone feels better. Smiling and laughing has a lot of positive effects on our health.
Laughing is linked with your heart health, emotions, lower stress, heal depression, and make you more attractive. Not only this laughing has a lot more health benefits and there are 1000s of reasons to laugh.

Talking about only yourself will not make you smart enough in front of others. Be a good listener too. There might be many things that you can learn by listening to others. Show your interest in other people, their interest and some real-life examples.
7. Show your interest in others
This act will make you a humble person and develop positive thinking about you in others’ minds. Be an understanding person, listen to others and offer solutions for their problem will make you a better and nice person.

There is a lot of difference in both sentences and you are smart enough to understand it.
11. Apologize sincerely
Nobody is perfect here. So, if you have done something that you think was wrong, accept it and apologize sincerely rather than arguing and defending yourself. Even after apologize if someone is criticizing you, don’t lose your cool, just listen and give yourself time to find the room for improvements.
12. Be approachable
Not only in personal or professional life but be approachable to everyone you meet. Being approachable will come in handy in many situations in our adult life and you can start this with just a smile. This will make you an optimistic person and interested in others.

Did you remember a very old Idiom “why to cry on spilled milk”? This situation will come only when you speak without knowing its result. Think twice before you speak.
Never make anyone hurt with your bad response even after the concerning person is wrong. Try to find another way to speak it out.

Honesty is the best policy and it’s a fact. Be stick on it guys. Being honest sometimes can hurt you for a little time but a single lie will bother you for a long time and some time your one lie can make you regret for a lifetime.
Accept the truth rather than telling a lie and increasing the burden on you.
20. Giving and sharing
A giving and sharing attitude is always a great deal. There is a lot of joy in giving. Do good to others and receive happiness and inner peace in return. The happiness of giving will flood with positive energy within you.
21. Remember people’s name
Asking for the name, again and again, will make others feel that you are not giving importance to him/her and it’s not a sign of a nice person at all.
If you can remember the name of reel life movie character than why can’t you remember the name of someone you meet and talked for a while?
22. Thank you email/note/text
Online conversations are increasing day by day so try to be nice on social media and online chats as well. Say “thank you” and “please”. Talk with some basic antiquates.

Indirectly you are saying “You are wrong and I am right”. This is not a sign of a nice person and will definitely not make you happy too. Instead, you can say we already tell ourselves.

Finding time to someone isn’t only enough. If you have found some time from your busy schedule, be available for them fully. Think about them, talk about them not about only you and your business. Listen to them spend a good time together.

Being nice for your personal gain will not give you inner peace and there is also not any surety that another person will not notice this act. So, be nice for your inner peace, self-satisfaction, and, other’s happiness.
35. Don’t discuss People’s Appearances
God has made everyone different. Remember that you are also not perfect. There are people better than you. Judging someone with their physical appearance is the biggest mistake we actually do. Appearance isn’t everything.
At last, only these ways can’t make you a nice person, you must have craze to be nice. Be committed to your good habits and believe in helping others.
