You stay mindful when you acknowledge all your many blessings. It also magnifies these positive emotions and allows your body to relax and move into a receptive state. Research shows that positive emotions fade faster than feelings of worry or dread, but once we activity work on maintaining an outlook of gratitude we can shift back to positivity.
An easy way to shift is by beginning a gratitude journal. Each day write three things you are grateful for. These can be big or small, such as the sunshine or a cozy bed to sleep in. When you have trouble shifting back to positive reread past entries and watch as even more good things flood into your life.
Welcome to day five of the challenge!
The best way to master random acts of kindness? Practice! The more you practice the more creative you will become!
In a recent post (click here) I shared a few ways for you to get started on your own practice. Have you tried anything off the list? Remember,
doing something in this challenge doesn’t have to be scary or costly. Just offering a smile to a stranger can change their entire day!
Let’s take a look at more ways you can reach out and offer kindness:
All of these are super-easy, low-effort and free ways to brighten someones day. You can do it!
See you tomorrow as we look at how kindness can impact the world.
Yesterday I asked you to think of Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) that you may have done or examples of kindness others have done for you. It's okay if you couldn't think of any or if performing random acts of kindness is a new process for you. Coming up with ideas can be tough, so today I thought I would share some ideas to get your started. Some of these activities cost nothing and take only a moment of your time. Others will be more in-depth and you may spend as much or as little as you like. Choose whatever fits your comfort level and the occasion.
Enjoy these examples of random acts of kindness and let them inspire you!
Hopefully, this quick list will inspire you to begin sharing random acts of kindness with those around you. Pick one from the list or come up with an idea of your own, then just do it. See how you feel. Chances are you will be ready to do another one tomorrow and the day after.
See you back here tomorrow as we discuss what “kindness” really means.
Yesterday was a super quick video explaining more about the challenge:
