Did you know that next week is World Kindness Day? Since we’re talking about kindness toward ourselves this month, it’s a perfect time to get the party started early.
World Kindness Day on November 13 focuses on being kind-hearted to others. Are you stumped for new ideas? Check out the innovative article “30 Acts of Kindness for 30 Days of Growth.” I loved the suggestion to tape a lotto ticket to your local gas pump with a note of “I hope you win!”
You don’t have to spend a lot of money. Surprise a stranger by holding the door open for them. If you’re ready for a big leap, give your loved one sole control of the TV remote. (You can wrestle it back tomorrow.)
Don’t forget to your personal act of kindness. There’s a “Just for me” list to get you started on the randomactsofkindness.org website. Listen to your favorite music. Eat a meal with seasonal, local ingredients. Get those running shoes out of the back of the closet or pull out your yoga DVD. If nothing else, take a few moments to appreciate the sunrise or sunset while taking a few deep breaths. Your spirit will thank you.
