- Don't watch tv or read the news.
- Leave the pub early telling everyone you need to get up before sunrise.
- When someone asks how you are, say you're really happy.
- Smile on a Monday. Actually just walk down the street any day smiling.
- Quit your job and go travelling - let your colleagues know you'll just find another job on your return.
- Eat alone in a restaurant without your phone.
- Remember someone's name you just met. Say goodbye by their name.
- Openly support the younger generation. Tell them often you've got their back.
- Wear bright colours in a dark city.
- Give up alcohol.
