The most precious of workplace commodities. Sure, there's a small chance it could go missing, but you can be a hero for saving someone in their hour of charging need.

2. Keeping an extra cardie handy at the office.

In those winter months, there will always be eternal gratitude on offer for a bit of communal knitwear.

5. Writing a personal birthday message for a colleague. / Via

It's easy to write the generic "happy birthday" when the card gets passed around, but an extra bit of thought makes someone feel that extra bit special.

8. Making eye contact.

We can express a million and one things just through our eyes. Catching the gaze of someone can instantly create a positive connection and a warm feeling.

10. Taking an extra second to clean up.

They may not know it, but it's saving someone else a job. (And so shines a good deed in a weary world.)

16. Sending a courtesy thank you email.

We can all get super busy, but taking a second to send a quick acknowledgement puts minds at ease and makes the world a happier place.

17. Taking a second to slow down. / Via

As Ferris Bueller would say, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." And you could miss an opportunity to stop and savour the good bits with those around you.

It's the little things that make the big things happen.
