Good Morning and Happy Motivation Monday!
In today's crazy busy world it's easier to keep your eye on the prize and focus on the ever growing to do list in front of you, but, what would happen if we all took just a few minutes every day to think about the other people around us? To focus on what we could do to improve their day?
What if we lived in a world where these acts of kindness were the norm and not the exception to the rule?
This month I am focusing on what I can do for others on a daily basis.
Let's face it, I would love to make huge donations to charity, to volunteer 20+ hours a week to helping others, to find a safe place for people without a home to go to, and so much more but like you I am one person with responsibilities to my family, my employer, my business and limited means. That, however, doesn't mean I can't make a difference.
I am committing to doing my part by doing at least 5 random act's of kindness every day!
Not sure where to start? Here are a few Random Act's of Kindness ideas to get you started...
- Smile at a Stranger
- Hold the door for someone
- Give a compliment
- Buy someone a cup of coffee
- Send a thank you note
- Send someone a text message to encourage them
- Make a funny face (when you see a friend looking a little down)
- Share a cute picture or quote with someone you know
- Call just to say hello
- Give a random high five (especially effective with kids)
- Give a hug
- Share a sweet treat
What will you do today to make someone smile?
