Today is World Kindness Day, an international observance dedicated to spreading kindness to those around you and in your community. We strive to bring happiness to others every day of the year, so we are excited to participate in this global movement! Here are four ways you can spread kindness today.
- Compliment or affirm a colleague or loved one. Sharing something you like or admire about that person with them can really make their day.
- Pay it forward. Gift the person behind you in the fast food line or coffee shop with a delightful surprise! Practicing generosity can lead to great joy and fulfillment.
- Give someone your undivided attention. Don’t look at your phone or glance around while you talk with them. Give them your full attention and really listen to what they have to say. They will see that you truly care.
- Recognize someone for their hard work. Show a colleague, family member or teacher that you appreciate them with a trophy, plaque, certificate or even a thank you note. They will love feeling so special!
