Being nice costs nothing and makes you feel great! Here are 65 nice things to say to people and create a little sunshine in the world.
There is nothing more flattering than being thought of as a really nice person. Being nice to people takes no time at all, hardly any effort and you make an incredible difference to those around you. It also fills you with that warm fuzzy feeling of wellbeing. Here is a comprehensive list of nice things to say to people and make the world a little better.
You never know what someone might be going through or how they might feel that day. Whether it’s your best friend, your mom, or a stranger, taking the time to say something nice to someone makes all the difference.
Being nicer is something we should all strive for. You’ll also probably find the nicer you are to people the nicer they are back. Niceness rubs off on people. So, spreading the love means the person you were nice to will go onto be nicer to someone else and so on.
There are many different ways you can be nice to people. Often giving someone a simple compliment makes their day and keeps them smiling! Sometimes you want to give a deeper, more meaningful compliment, something that sticks with them for a long time.
Compliments about someone’s appearance work well on strangers. You don’t want to get too deep and meaningful with someone you just met or don’t know at all.
However, compliments to good friends and relatives or partners can be more heartfelt. Telling someone how much they mean to you, how grateful you are that they are in your life, and that you truly appreciate and value them and wouldn’t change them for the world is so nice to hear. It really strengthens your relationships with others too!
So, the next time you get an opportunity to be nice why not give it a go? Here are 65 nice things to say to people to give you some inspiration and get you started!
#61 Be sincere. There is no point in being nice just for the sake of it, or if you have a selfish ulterior motive. You’ll just come across as fake and insincere and that won’t make the other person feel good about themselves at all. Make sure you are genuine when you are nice, and you’ll give the other person a real confidence boost. [Read: 30 honest life truths you need to understand]
#62 Be thoughtful. Actually put some thought behind your compliments and nice words. Think about what the other person would like to hear, what’s been troubling them, what their insecurities are, or anything they might feel doubtful about. Then think of something nice and reassuring to say that addresses these concerns.
#63 Be original. Of course, coming up with a truly unique compliment that they’ve never heard before is going to win you extra brownie points. Try to be original when being nice, and don’t just say the exact same thing to each and every person you meet.
#64 Say it with a smile. Having a big sincere smile on your face when you say something nice shows just how much you mean it and only proves more what a nice and kind person you are. So, make sure you flash those pearly whites when you spread the love! [Read: How to smile more often and change your life]
#65 Back it up with actions. We have all heard the phrase ‘actions speak louder than words.’ If you want to truly demonstrate what a nice person you are and make someone’s day then make sure your actions back up your nice words.
These nice things to say to people are a great start if you want to try and be a more positive, friendly, and kinder person. Remember it takes so little to be nice, and can have such a massive impact on others. So, whenever you do get the opportunity to be nice, go for it!
The more often you are nice to other people, the more you’ll be regarded as a kind, friendly, and positive person. You’ll naturally attract people because you make them feel good about themselves. You open yourself up to more experiences, people will want to repay the compliment and return the favor, so will be more likely to say nice things to you and do nice things for you, which can be a massive confidence boost. It generally makes your life all the more wonderful as well.
