Take today to think of the things others have done for you and that you are grateful for. Choose the thing you are most grateful for, it needn’t be something that someone has recently done for you and send them a thank you note. This could be hand written, emailed or even text. Tell them what it meant to you and let them know you appreciated their kindness.
We all have them. Great friends who – for whatever reason – we don’t often speak to. Friends with busy schedules, kids, hectic careers or even those living far away. Use today as an opportunity to call a friend you love but don’t speak to often and let them know you’re thinking about them.
Take a look around on your journey into work today and give up your seat on public transport, offer to give someone a lift or just simply offer help – you could even tell them about your kindness challenge!
Buy your favorite book or a book you know your friend will like and give it to your friend with a card saying what they mean to you as a surprise (you could do this on Amazon and use the gift wrapping option to write the note).
Take today to think about family, what you value about them, what they like, their interests and hobbies. Buy them something thoughtful and present it to them with a note about how much you value them or simply sign it thinking of you.
As you go about your day today take the time to notice those around you, what qualities you admire in them, whether they look particularly nice or if they have just done a really good job. Then pay them a genuine compliment.
