It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the world we live in and its problems. 

For some, like me, problems like Brexit, climate change and poverty can make the world feel overwhelming not least with smaller, everyday problems like homework, stress, revision and other personal problems; making it very easy to feel powerless to change the world or have an impact. We hear terrible stories everyday – we live in a world of atrocities – but does it have to be that way? You have the power to change those atrocities in some way, shape or form. Because, you, yes, you have a voice!!

There’s a voice inside everyone of us…. It just has to be let out. 

It may feel small to start with, but it’s there, ready for you to make an impact! You, you and you all have the ability to do something brilliant in your life. Do something small to start – be free less! Ask yourself what you can do right now, in the present moment, that will make a small impact. Turn the dislikes of that moment into something more likable. The more tiny actions you complete, the bigger the effect of those actions become and more and more they transpire until, before you know, you’ve changed the world! The more nice actions, the nicer the world becomes, and if you encourage others to do the same as you, well good on you! 

Some things you could do:

  1. Hold the door for people.

  2. Say hello to people, ask how they feel.

  3. Either do an individual or group litter pick.

  4. Write to your local MP about something that you would like changed. And if they don’t do what you want them to do, write to them again, then write to the council, then to the government. Speak up, take action!

  5. Help the homeless or those who look lost with their lives – chat to them, give them food, clothes, whatever they need.

  6. Chat to people who feel lonely. 

  7. Create a garden. 

  8. Share positivity. 

  9. Clean up.

  10. Find out more about what you buy, wear and use. What don’t you like about these things? What can you do to change what you don’t like?

  11. Volunteer.

  12. Look out for the elderly. Particularly, those who live on their own, they can pass away without anyone noticing! Pay them a visit once a week, or even once a day if you want to! They’ll feel happier and you’ll feel better for it.

  13. Be a positive role model. 

Try these things, see what works. See what you can do. If you want to create a bigger impact, involve your friends, too. And I’m sure, if we all do this, in no time at all our world will be a better, brighter, happier place to live in!
