A New List of Kindness Suggestions

Readers of my books and my blog postings are all familiar with my message that we can offer acts of kindness daily as we go about our daily lives. We can lift the spirits of those around us; we can show Jesus' love; we can bring joy to others, simply by taking an extra moment to be kind.

When I offer specific actions and ideas on what actions we can take, I get tremendous feedback on the helpfulness of such lists. So, in that spirit, here are some thoughts.

  • Tweet or Facebook message a genuine compliment to three people right now.

  • Bring doughnuts (or a healthy treat, like cut-up fruit) to work.

  • While you’re out, compliment a parent on how well-behaved their child is.

  • Cook a meal, or do a load of laundry for a friend who just had a baby, or is going through a difficult time.

  • If you walk by a car with an expired parking meter, put a quarter in it.

  • Put your phone away when you are with other people.

  • Don’t interrupt when someone else is speaking. (Surprisingly few people master this.)

  • Let someone into your lane on the highway. They’re probably in a rush just like you.
