Cultivate the mind and support Geðhjálp

This winter, Geðhjálp, the Icelandic Mental Health Alliance, offers daily doses of small, straightforward tips intended to improve mental health. We call those tips “vitamin G”.

  • Compliment people

    „Nice hair. Cool jacket. Good food. You’re doing well.“ You don’t have to say this all at once, but everyone agrees that being complimented is a wonderful feeling. Praise improves our communications and is constructive while reducing the destructive forces of jealousy and envy. It feels good to compliment others. Point out the positive in the behaviour of others and you will reap great rewards. Take care to try to understand others. When people take long strides, it slows them down to put themselves in other people’s shoes. When all is said and done, travelling together is the only way ahead. Let’s give compliments.
