How to be kind: simple ways to spread happiness…

How to be kind

Don’t you just love small kindnesses?  I love it when someone makes me a cup of tea, tells me they think my shoes are awesome, or offers me their magazine on the train.  Those small things can turn a pretty mediocre day into a good one.  And if you’re having a bad day, those things can mean a whole lot more…

Some people excel at spreading kindness – they seem to do it effortlessly!  Perhaps we can can learn how to be kind (or how better to show kindness) everyday from these people.

Janina Vigurs started a Facebook page called Relentless Kindness, which she describes as “a page/cause/movement/mindset to inspire and foster kindness”.  Janina does this by regularly leaving anonymous love notes in public places (see below).

Isn’t that a fabulous idea?

Ines Hristova from Facebook page To The Lovely has gone one step further and has been hand-painting, illustrating and writing on beautiful little pebbles which she then passes on to people to leave where others will find them…  I was lucky enough to receive some of these positivity pebbles and am really enjoying thinking about where to leave them.  So far I have balanced one on our little postbox and left one on a desk at work.

I’m planning to leave another in the school playground this afternoon.  Where would you leave one?
