Do you find yourself becoming overwhelmed with work, back to school, or just life in general? Wish there was some way to ease the anxiety and bring contentment back into your life? There is. The treatment towards contentment within is threefold; service, kindness, and love.
See, the moment you remove your attention from yourself and put that thought and energy into doing good for others through acts of kindness you are reminded of what truly matters in life. Random acts of kindness is a way to keep you grounded and you never know just how much your act of kindness means to others…it might be the one act that prevents someone from making the biggest mistake of their lifetime.
Please note these acts need not be to time consuming or elaborate, but simple everyday choices you can make to make others feel loved. Here are some suggestions for encouraging others with your random acts of kindness (source)
- Be kind
- Be thoughtful
- Use your manners as a form of kindness.
- Give out compliments generously.
- Think about people who quietly make a difference to your community and thank them.
- Cheer up the lonely.
- Shower a coworker with kindness
- Share a little wealth around
- Give your family a break.
- Hold a friends night-in
- Send a message
- Forgive somebody
- Share a smile
- Expect nothing
Do you have any suggestions to add to the list? I know I personally enjoy serving others with friends (thus the image above…we are rockin those hairnets, lol!) and family. Do you have a story, experience, or act that you would like to share….sometimes reading about the joy others receive through acts of kindness encourages other to do the same so please share.
