It’s World Kindness Week, and it’s the perfect time to give back, give thanks, and do something nice for your loved ones or community.
Bring flowers to your grandmother or the nice older lady next door, have tea, and listen to some of their stories and memories. You’ll probably learn something and brighten their day.
Write notes of inspiration and kindness on slips of paper and stick them in books you’re lending to friends or library books you’re returning for the next reader to find.
Cook a meal for a friend of family member going through a hard time or even just a busy season at work.
Go to the nearest public park with friends and pick up trash or volunteer with a group to clean up alongside highways.
Bake extra of your favorite dessert and bring them to work to share or deliver them to a friend who could use a nice surprise.
Babysit your friend or family member’s kids so they can go out on a date night or make time for self-care. Or pet-sit while they go on vacation.
Pay for coffee for the car behind you in the drive-thru or dinner for a couple or family at the same restaurant as you.
