How cool is it that there’s an actual day on the calendar that’s solely dedicated to spreading kindness? What’s even cooler is knowing that even the seemingly smallest act of kindness can have the biggest and most profound impact on someone’s day, and potentially even their life. So if you believe in the power of creating a kinder world – don’t wait, start NOW! It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture, or a costly and time consuming one, here are 3 easy ways to embrace world kindness day.
Share something positive on social media
We all know that Social Media can at times be a space that gathers and accumulates hate and negativity… so be the person who does the opposite and spread positivity on social media, even just for 10-minutes. You could post something that’s going to have a positive influence of someone’s day – a nice comment on someone’s photo, an empowering quote on a friends wall or even a funny goat video (might I suggest this one) that everyone can have a good giggle at – or in this case, a full on deep belly laugh.
Write a warm fuzzie and leave it on a co-workers desk
We all have a hundred things to do when we sit down at our desk, which often means we can lose sight of just how talented, supportive and damn downright amazing our co-workers truly are. From time to time, it’s nice to know that you’re appreciated – we’re only human after all – so pay it forward with a personalised note that will leave them feeling valued and respected. Complement them on a skill, pay thanks to their presence in your life or simply tell them they’re doing a kick-ass job!
Call someone you would normally text
Whether it’s your mum, your brother, your best friend, your dad, your sister or your cousin, in the new age world we live in that’s filled with countless tech devices and numerous digital communication platforms, a voice to voice conversation with someone you love is refreshing and uplifting. So the next time you go to hit send on an email, a text message, a tweet or a private message, stop pick up your phone and dial the number. Even a 5-10 minute conversation can make the world of difference to the receiver.
