Offer invisible support to others to subtly yet effectively help them through a difficult situation
Offer practical support by taking care of other tasks
For example, if your roommate is stressed out over their exams, take care of the house chores for the next few days.
Provide indirect advice and normalize the situation by discussing something similar
For example, if your friend is stressed out over a relationship, you could discuss a similar situation that has implications for someone else you know while that friend is around.
Touch your loved ones affectionately
Touch is one of the most powerful tools we can use to help others feel better.
