Sometimes I feel that in our modern world, small acts of kindness are slowly disappearing. We all just try our best to make our lives the best kind of life possible, without paying attention to others. What’s sad though – kindness mostly doesn’t cost us anything. That’s why, today, I decided to name a few acts of kindness we could all try on our neighbours and friends.
I often feel we go through life ignoring the people around us. Only saying as much as we need to, avoiding eye contact, sometimes even leaving in our headphones while we pay. Today, why don’t you chat a little, while you’re at the till? It won’t hurt and it might make your day as well!
And not just a cup of coffee, one with foam, a small biscuit, some latte art (?) and the whole sha-bang. My old housemate did this for me a couple of years ago and I still remember, even though it’s such a tiny thing!
Go all out with starter, main course and dessert. If you fancy, you can even print menus and make everyone feel extra-special. Time to test those Pinterest recipes! Bonus: If you love cooking but never have a reason to try something special, now’s your chance.
It might sound superficial, but it always makes me smile if people do this. But please: Don’t do it in a creepy way, just be nice ;)
Not just the one you used.
It’s a surprise, so you can be sure to make somebody’s day with a letter!
That sweater your friend really loves and always compliments you on when you’re wearing it? Give it away without asking for money, just like that.
What are your favourite ways to make somebody’s day?
