https://kindness.org/ is an AMAZING organization with a simple, yet powerful mission: to educate and inspire people to choose kindness. And February 17, 2019 is National Random Acts of Kindness Day!
So, yes… every single day should be random acts of kindness day. You should do nice things for people for NO REASON. But it seems like we tend to get so focused on our routines and checking things off of our to-do lists that we forget to be intentional with spreading joy and kindness.
What better way to fight the negativity than with Random Acts of Kindness? I'd rather see my feed filled with this kind of stuff. Wouldn't you?
Here are some ideas:
Grab a friend and volunteer together
Take your kids for a walk and teach them about cleaning up and taking care of the earth
Compliment a stranger
Give a blanket or a food gift card to a homeless person in need
Buy someone’s coffee
Text a friend (or family member) just to see how they’re doing
Tip your server EXTRA well
Take cookies or a treat to your local fire or police stations
Hold the door open for people
Bring breakfast for your coworkers
Strike up a conversation with a stranger
Send flowers to someone anonymously
Whatever you do today, do it with kindness. And, hey - maybe continue the practice and try to do something kind EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
