Although today is Random Acts of Kindness; I think every day should be a day for kindness. So, today prepare to do something kind for someone.
National Random Acts of Kindness
First and foremost, this holiday is celebrated yearly by individuals, businesses and groups. Not only is this day about doing something nice for someone; but also both the recipient and receiver both feel good.
You can celebrate today by posting on social media. No matter how you celebrate this fun holiday; make sure you try to do something to bring a smile to someone’s face. Indeed, there are a lot of ways this can be accomplished.
Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Today
In the first place, if you’re looking for some ways to celebrate the holiday today; some ideas I have are:
- Smile – Make sure you smile to everyone you come in contact with.
- Help – By helping someone with a chore or a task or just being there; certainly brings relief to someone else.
- Compliment – By saying something nice to someone; you’re give them reassurance.
- Pay – Indeed there are several things you can do today. For instance, pay it forward. Pay it forward is something you can do while in line getting a bagel or beverage. Or, if you’re at a toll booth, pay for the car behind you.
Have Your Kids Involved in Random Acts of Kindness
As your kids are getting ready to go outside today; teach them the importance of being kind. In the same fashion, it is important to teach our kids to treat others the way they want to be treated. Like the same rules in sportsmanship; teach your kids how to express themselves in a kind way. Visit our Youth Sportsmanship Behavior post on the importance of teaching our kids how to be good sports.
So today, have your kids help someone. Or have your kids visit a hospital and donate some toys to the Children’s unit. No matter what your kids do today or any other day; make sure they understand the importance of doing something nice for someone else.
In summary, celebrate Random Acts of Kindness not only today but every day.
As always, I welcome your comments.
