Random Acts of Kindness Week

Random Acts of Kindness Week Feb. 8- Feb. 14

This week is designated as Random Acts of Kindness Week. I have blogged about the importance of this choice before; not with just a particular week of the year. But practicing this on a daily basis, as well.

Research indicates that people who practice this are happier and more resilient; not to mention the positive impact it can have on the receiver.

I would like to add a different spin on this, at this time. Along with doing random acts of kindness for others, make sure to also be kind to yourself. Yes, kindness to yourself! This is neither selfish nor greedy. In fact, quite the opposite. Being kind to ourselves is very healthy and necessary.

In an article written by Rick Hanson, he states that “… taking care of yourself has good ripple effects for others. Deliberately do a small thing that feeds you—a little rest, some exercise, some time for yourself—and then notice how this affects your relationships.”

Try practice changing any negative self-talk you may engage in; to more positive self-talk such as “I am a hard worker.” “It is okay for me to take a break and take care of my needs.” “It’s okay to make mistakes. Everyone does and sometimes we learn the best lessons this way.”

 I invite you to think of ways you can be kind to yourself this week and, more importantly, to keep this self care going. Remember you matter; you are unique and have valuable gifts.

                      Let’s support one another!
    Feel free to list other ideasfor kindness to ourselves and others.

Thanks. This is a good reminder for me to also make sure I am being kind to myself. Sometimes, easier said than done.

I totally agree with you are saying here about doing random acts of kindness. Kindness is indeed rare nowadays and it is good if one would so something kind wholeheartedly. Not everybody is capable of being kind and it is a gift if you are kind hearted. I hope that more people would see that being kind is something that all of us should do. We should not leave those in need of help to their own devices. We must help each and everyone.

I think we do need to be reminded of the value of all people; whatever their circumstances may be. Think about "giving back" to those in need such as the homeless. We never know how one may be impacted by these gestures, in a positive way
