31 Days - Day 6

 
Acts of Kindness

Both simple and grand acts of kindness make a difference in the lives of others and when we're the ones performing them, in our own lives. Here are a few simple ideas that can have a ripple effect.

  1. At least once a day do something selfless for someone else.
  2. Pick up litter. Instead of walking by trash on the sidewalk, throw it in the garbage can. Every little bit helps and even one piece makes a difference.
  3. Donate books you no longer need. An adult daycare or elder care facility.
  4. Donate a bag of dog or cat food (or both) to your local animal shelter.
  5. Hold the door for someone else and let them go ahead.
  6. Write a personal note of thanks to someone who has made a difference to you.
  7. Write a personal note letting someone know you thought of them instead of sending a text, tweet or Facebook message.
  8. Pick up the phone and call that loved one or friend you haven't spoken to in months or years (for whatever reason).
  9. Compliment someone who does something well; compliment with sincerity and acknowledge what a difference they make.
  10. Drive courteously. Let a few cars merge in front of you. If someone cuts you off, slow down and forget about it.
