How to celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week (February 12-18)


“Kindness starts with love” – that’s a great quote to begin Random Acts of Kindness week which is celebrated  February  12-18 2017.

Practicing kindness is more than just a nice thing to do; it’s also beneficial to overall well-being. Did you know that kindness is scientifically proven to boost health and  happiness. To celebrate the week step out of your comfort zone – attempt a new random act of kindness each day .  Here are seven great  ideas to get you started:

  1. Just smile at one extra person.
  2. Eat lunch with someone new—at school or at the office.
  3. Make sure you tell your partner  I love you or give someone special an extra hug.
  4. Try a new vegetable or fruit or even try and cook something healthy and new for you or your family.
  5. Send a positive message to someone in need or help someone who might not need it, but appreciates it.
  6. Donate unwanted or unused clothes or household goods to a shelter, non-profit or animal rescue organization.
  7. If you feel you just must make a monetary contribution and are insistent, buy someone’s groceries or offer to help pay for someone in line.
