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:

In Day 5 of the Gratitude Challenge we shift our focus.
In life’s day-to-day hustle its easy to overlook opportunities to express and even notice gratitude. During this challenge we have talked about journaling, daily reflection and affirmations as steps you can take to bring more positive energy and grace into your life. Today let’s talk about meditation.
There Are Different Types of Meditations
From counting to guided, there are many different types of meditations. Here are two guided mediations you can listen to today Lady Roxanna’s Pink Light Meditation and a Full Moon Meditation that will help you calm your mind. You can listen to both as much as you like to relax, destress and step into gratitude. While these are not themed gratitude meditations, they will support and encourage your gratitude mindset nonetheless.
What Are Gratitude Meditations?
Gratitude meditations involve focusing your thoughts on being grateful for the particulars of your life or situation, even the events that may not seem so positive. These heart centered meditations can be challenging at first, but over time can assist you in a deep healing.
Journaling is a Form of Meditation
Your gratitude journaling can also be considered a meditation. Any contemplative, purposeful time you spend quietly reviewing these events counts as meditation.
So while you may think of meditation as a long, intensive ritual one has to do sitting in the lotus position, in actuality, it is not that difficult. Simply sitting quietly for a few minutes and contemplating what you’re grateful for can help to center you and balance your emotions. This will lead to a new perspective and feelings of peace and appreciation. Meditation is a simple tools that offer a big return. Give it a try when you feel you could use a boost of gratitude in your life.
Share this with your friends and family and let’s start a wave of gratitude!
