44 little random acts of kindness to give (no matter what day it is)

February 17, 2020

 

Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day. You’ve probably seen streams of the tag #RandomActsOfKindness on social media by now because it’s definitely trending. It always does, and for good reason too. 

 

It’s a day which highlights the importance of actively ‘doing good’ and helping others. Not only is this, of course, a fantastic thing to do for someone else, but, there’s also evidence out there which suggests that it has a positive effect on your own mental health and wellbeing too.     

 

Good on you if you’ve managed to get onboard and share a bit of kindness today. But don’t worry if you’ve not managed to ‘do’ you random act of kindness just yet, because little random acts of kindness can and should be given freely, anytime, no matter what day it is. The most important thing to remember is that we all want to make our world a better place. And, a step towards getting to that better place is remembering to be kind to one another.
