How Can We Be Kind?

Being kind has been shown to increase our well-being, health and happiness. When we refer to kindness, it is important to be kind to yourself as well as to others.

So, How Can We Be Kind?

The following tips may be helpful to increase kindness –

  1. Be kind towards yourself – you can do this by nurturing your body with enough water, eating nutritious food, take some time out to do the things you enjoy. You can read more here on self-compassion.
  2. Be mindful and expand your awareness – take some time out to become more aware of what surrounds you. For example sit in a chair and look out a window and really see the amazing colours, smell the vast aromas and hear the sounds that nature provides for us. Click here to read more about mindfulness.
  3. Do an anonymous random act of kindness – that’s right, no-one has to know, just complete an anonymous random act of kindness. This could include – sending a ‘thank you’ card to someone, paying for a stranger’s cup of coffee or toll if you are travelling. Click here to find more ways to be grateful in your life.
  4. Give – have you ever noticed how nice it feels when you give to someone? Unsure? Next time you give a gift to someone, notice how it feels!

    Being kind to others is the most underrated thing in this world imho. EVERYONE can learn to be kind. We don’t have to be rich or famous to be kind to others and animals.

    I won’t consider myself a philanthropist… how I am kind to others is simply doing the mundane things. Like holding the door for someone, saying “please,” “thank you” and “you’re welcome.” Don’t raise my voice even when I’m angry. Picking up trash whenever I see one, etc.

    Really simple things that everyone can do.

    I love this quote by Jackie Chan: “Sometimes it takes only one act of kindness and caring to change a person’s life.”
