Ideas for expressing your love this Valentine's Day! There's something for everyone, regardless of age and background, to feel happy!

You can make Valentine's Day super special by doing some of these activities all by yourself, or with your loved ones, family members or with friends or colleagues! 1. Share your food with the hungry. While you plan for a cosy meal, how about making or buying more to share with hungry people you see on the street. Making sandwiches or bhel or biryani could be fun when done with loved ones or friends.

Compliment a colleague for doing a great job!

You don't need to wait for a formal performance review or a special occasion to compliment a colleague. If you believe a job is done well or a colleague has really stretched to meet a deadline, or went beyond the call of duty, showed great courage to stand up for a cause, worked persistently to address a challenge, stood in for another person...or just did a good job quietly behind the scenes, express your appreciation immediately.  Just send an email or pick up the phone and compliment your colleague.

Give someone you love, or even a stranger, flowers for no reason!

'Vasant Panchami' is around the corner, marking the onset of spring in India! Have you started noticing the blossoming of flowers around you or the bright ones dancing in the gentle breeze on the shelves of flower shops in your neighbourhood? Take a bunch and spread some happiness!\Flowers convey your emotions in all situations, they connect hearts in joy and in grief, in prayer and in celebrations, they break the ice among strangers and strengthen bonds among friends!Give someone you love, flowers for no reason? Yes, why not? It is sure to bring a smile and great joy!

Call someone to talk to them rather than texting.

We are so used to communicating through text messages... yes, there are several benefits in doing so. It gives the recipient the time to revert, it gives you the comfort that you are not disturbing the recipient, it is more actionable as the recipient can forward, open a link, respond to you, and it also gives the recipient the option to ignore.However, text messages lack the warmth and excitement of the spoken word and deprive the opportunity to have a conversation.

Enjoy nature's bounty, share food with the hungry all of this week!

Harvest festivals are about thanking nature for the bounty it offers in the form of crops. It's about welcoming the change of season, enjoying the sunshine with colourful rangoli, kolams, kites and costumes, with song and dance to rhythmic beats. It's all about celebrating with the community.So, whether you are celebrating Pongal, Bihu, Lohri, Makara Sankranti, Poush Sankranti, Uttarayan or a harvest festival by another name...do share nature's bounty with people around you! Share food with the hungry all of this week.

Do a random act of kindness

Read/ Share acts of kindness using #GivingTuesdayIndia

From the time you wake up to the time you sleep, have you made a count of how many times you find yourself complaining about something or the other? "There are too many mosquitoes here.""The flow of water is too slow to enjoy the shower.""Why does the maid have to be on leave today?""My driver is always late and gives lame excuses.""This breakfast is lousy, has spoilt my day.""Why do the kids need so much persuasion to wake up?""Why am I the only one responsible for everything that goes wrong?""Why are the trains running late?""How many more messages am I going to get from colleagues about leave?""The internet is too slow?""There is such poor mobile coverage!""Why is there so much traffic?""Don't we deserve cleaner air?""I can't take any more of this...everyone is running late!""Why is the air conditioner not cooling well?""The coffee is not strong enough. Don't you remember my preference?""Can't you see I am in the queue? Why are you trying to push me?""Why is your cab so warm? Can't you keep sun shades?""Why do I have to keep making corrections, all the time?""Why are you using both the arm rests and taking up so much space? I have also paid for my ticket."...Choose not to complain about anything for an entire day! Hold back your words and see if you can do something about the situation, or can you let go this one time or have a conversation, understand the underlying reason and help find a solution or reflect if there is something you could do differently or try to be grateful for what you have.#EveryTuesday#GivingTuesdayIndiaMy Giving for #MyBetterBharat
