Conscious Acts of Kindness

With all that is going in the world, it can be easy to miss the every day opportunities to be kind, but those opportunities have not gone away!

During lockdown or otherwise, we continue to choose our words and how we express them. We can choose to focus our actions on growing loving kindness in the every day moments.

And on top of that, research shows that being kind even helps us each to feel better! What’s not to love?

What is one of your favourite small acts of kindness to share?

  1. I love your blog for its unceasing positivity. The internet can be such a dark, selfish place but it’s very nice to be reminded occasionally that the negativity comes from such a small, probably ill, portion of society. I actually found myself lapsing into apathetic cynicism this morning after a particularly coarse exchange with my cellmates during lockdown (this is really straining our relationships) and this post snapped me out of it.

  2. My favorite thing to do is to let others know how much they inspire me by sharing their own truths. For me it’s so simple to let someone know how much you appreciate their contribution. Saying thank you. Smiling. We need that more than ever right now❤

  3. Sometimes just smiling or saying thank you will make a person’s day. For my mom, it’s a long distance phone call from me or a truly silly card.

  4. Especially now, when we are ALL experiencing some variation of a Covid experience, it is easier to empathize with the stress and suffering that others are going through alongside us. Giving them a smile, a kind word, and not giving in to knee-jerk reactions is not only a kindness to them, but reflects back on ourselves, as though that same kindness was being done for us.
    Thanx for the post!

  5. We’ve paid for a meal for a family at our favorite restaurant who had a daughter who was clearly undergoing chemotherapy. We’ve paid for hotel rooms for stranded service members who missed a flight. We do this kind of thing for strangers when we see a need we can meet and whenever possible we do it anonymously. A former colleague pays for the person behind her in the Starbucks drive-through every Friday morning.
