3 Ways To Be More Kind
- Aug 24, 2021
Have you ever found yourself wondering if random acts of kindness actually make a difference in the world? Could simply doing something nice for someone you don’t know really change anything? Well, the truth is, random acts of kindness really do make a difference!
The Ripple Effect of Kindness
Have you ever noticed that kindness is very similar to a yawn? Once one person starts, it becomes contagious! That’s because kindness is contagious! When one person is kind, it creates a ripple effect.
Influencers have gone viral on social media for buying food for the person behind them in line at a drive-through restaurant. Do you know what happened next? The others in line would follow suit and pay for the person behind them, creating a ripple effect!
Now imagine this on a larger scale—a group of people volunteering to feed the homeless, a friend giving a listening ear to a distressed companion, or a son caring for his elderly mother
By doing one random act of kindness, it could create a ripple effect and change the lives of so many people. Random acts of kindness can be as simple as giving someone a kindness coin, or traveling to another country to help rebuild a community.
Small Acts of Kindness Add Up to Big Change
Change cannot simply happen overnight. If you want to see a big change in your life, your community, or the world, it is best to start small. Small acts of kindness are the best way to make a big change.
For example, if you want to make a change in your community, you might have to go door to door getting signatures for a petition. At first, this act of kindness was just from one individual. But, once that list is filled with names, the act has a much larger impact.
Don’t Forget That Self-Love is The Ultimate Act of Kindness
If you want to make a difference in the world, inspire change through acts of kindness, and create peace with love, don’t forget to take the time to show yourself some kindness. Acts of self-kindness will help you stay healthy and well-prepared to share your kindness with others.
Showing yourself love can sometimes be hard, so start small. Compliment yourself more often or take time to care for your health by exercising or resting, depending on your needs. Provide yourself with the particular kindness that you need and deserve—you hereby have permission to be kind to yourself!
Ultimately, in order to share your kindness with the world, you need plenty of it for yourself. Being kind to yourself will well-position you to begin your journey of kindness with others.
