World Kindness Day

No kind act is too small. Even the smallest gesture can make someone’s day.

 

Commit to yourself to preform one act act of kindness every day.

 

What can you do?

 

1.     Send an uplifting text to a friend or family member. You can send something short or long. You can send a quote, something from the heart, or maybe even a picture. Maybe you saw an uplifting post on social media that reminded you of someone, send it to them.

2.     Let that guy merge into traffic with a wave and a smile. We have all been there: a lane is closed, lanes merge, or trying to leave a parking lot. When it happens at the wrong time, you can be stuck for who knows how long. Appreciate the opportunity to be able to let someone through; I’m sure they’ll appreciate you for it.

3.     Include intentional moments of kindness, laughter, and delight in your daily routine. What makes you happy? What moments make others around you happy? Add to each of your day something that helps puts some smiles on some faces.

4.     Go slightly outside of your comfort zone at least once a day to make someone smile. Pay for a coffee, talk to that person who is sitting alone, dance in the rain, anything out of the norm of what you may typically do.

5.     Share a compliment with a co-worker, a friend, or even a stranger. My eight old will compliment strangers in the store, and it leaves a smile on their face. Compliment on a picture or post a friend share on social media. Compliment a co-worker on something that you appreciate or notice different about them.

6.     Reach out to a family member you haven’t spoken to in a while. Maybe they’ve been too busy to reach out. Maybe they are waiting for you to initiate the contact for whatever reason. I call my grandma every once in a while, and she always loves to hear from my girls and I. Make it a quick update or a nice long conversation – that’s up to you.

7.     Treat someone to a cup of coffee (a friend, stranger, or even yourself). It doesn’t have to be coffee, but it may brighten their day enough to pay it forward, or even think about it all day. You never know who could use the little pick me up. Small acts and make a big impact.

 

There are countless ways to be kind. Be kind to yourself. Be kind to the people around you.
