Engaging in random acts of kindness can increase your happiness and resilience. We often get stuck in our own muck and forget to look around and see how we can assist others. Helping others is helping ourselves at the same time.
When I help someone it helps me live my personal mission of connecting with others and empowering others. Some of my readers actually do not need to hear this as they have overextended themselves volunteering to help others. For those who tend to avoid helping others, especially helping others you do not know, I would like to challenge you to venture outside of your comfort zone, and look for an opportunity to do this sometime this week and insert your help.
Here are some possibilities.
Provide company to someone that is lonely.
Help with a chore.
Provide a happy surprise— anonymously.
Make something for someone.
For this to be truly a random act of kindness, it needs to be given to a complete stranger for no other reason but to just be kind.
I would love to hear your stories of what you do and how it made you feel.
