Random Acts of Kindness Day celebrated worldwide Feb 17

February 17, 2012

Random Acts of Kindness Day is the name of an unofficial holiday increasingly celebrated around the world on February 17 in order to encourage acts of kindness.

It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture, just smile at some passers by, look people directly in the eye when talking to them, give people some extra time to listen to actually how they are, help a coworker, take a friend to lunch, pay for a stranger’s bus ride or toll……

These are just a few examples of simple little things to do today that could change someone’s life forever. And science has shown that it will change yours too!

Research shows that there are strong links between random acts of kindness and improvements in the health of people, so do not forget to do something kind today.

Post what random act of kindness you did today in the comments section! I want to hear from you!

Act 110

While out watching some basketball with some friends, we were eating some dinner. I generously offered to buy some food for everyone to have while we watched the game. It was totally unexpected by everyone.

Act 155 – Just a little time….

Tuesday, March 29, 2011, Act 155.

I’ve learned that you can do amazing things in only 60 seconds.

You can enlighten, inspire, or motivate someone. You can cheer them up or ease a burden. You can give them something they might need, and it just might be that single thing – a bit of information, an idea, help with something that before was overwhelming – that allows them to fulfill a dream and maybe turn their life around.

A minute is actually a substantial amount of time. (Sprint for just 60 seconds the next time you’re out for a run or bike ride, and you’ll see what I mean.) Set a timer, take a full minute and…………..

…find the phone numbers of three friends you haven’t spoken with in six months. And call them, rather than sending an email.

…go visit a relative that lives close by, but you never have the time to stop in.

…make a doctor’s appointment, if you haven’t had an annual checkup in more than a year.

It only takes 60 seconds to be kind – to others, to yourself, to everyone!

Act 153 – Lunch on the run

Wednesday, December 1, 2010, Act 153.

On this “Pay it Forward Day” I wanted to do something special for a person. I was lucky enough to be able to drive a friend to get some lunch for today. I even shared my two white chocolate and chocolate chip cookies for dessert.  Good times!

Act 151 – coffee break

Friday, June 25, 2010, Act 151.

This afternoon it was time for a coffee break. I took me and a coworker to McDonald’s for an afternoon caffeine fix and bought us both iced lattes.  It made the afternoon go by just a little bit faster!  Never a bad thing for a Friday!

Act 150 – Chocolate Chip cookies can make anything better

Wednesday, June 9, 2010, Act 150.

On the return work trip back home I bought some chocolate chip cookies at one of our layovers and shared them with my coworker. Chocolate chip cookies can make any trip better!
