What is kindness? And why should we all make it a priority in our lives?
We live in a world filled with people and other beings, constantly surrounded by them. Kindness is like the magic key that makes the living together easy as pie. It just works. And it makes us appreciate the other being, animals or Mother Nature so much more. Because when you practice kindness you cannot do harm, it's not physically or mentally possible.
It appears to be a huge term.KINDNESS.However, it isn't all that tough.Here are some basic everyday ideas that everyone may use to make a significant difference in the world.It's a lot bigger than you may believe.Consider what would happen if everyone did basic things like this.Have you ever experienced something similar?As if you were approached by a stranger who offered you a seat.Or are they paying attention to you when you're speaking?All of these are gestures of compassion.They have an effect on you as well.It has a deep effect on you, and it's a lovely sensation.
Bake a cake
Maybe someone you know had a bad day. Surprise them with a cake for dessert. It will change their whole day for the better. Or perhaps you have never spoken to your neighbour at all, but she waters your plants just like that every day? Bake some muffins and invite her for tea.
Buy someone a coffee
Ever stood in line to order a coffee? What about paying the coffee for the person behind you in the queue? A simple thing that doesn't cost you much in physical value and will reward you with so much more on a deeper level.
Donate for your local animal shelter
When there are places in need just next door, it doesn't necessarily have to be the large nonprofits.
Come in and make a donation of your time, food, or money.
Spend some time with the animals at the shelter and notice how it affects your mood.
Be kind to yourself
One that we frequently overlook.Take a break and read your favourite book. Don't overdo your workouts.
Eat slowly and deliberately.Every day, sit still and just be for a few minutes.That is Kindness.
Do volunteering work
The world needs people like you. People that selflessly offer their time to help people that are less fortunate and in need. What you get out of it again, is so much more rewarding than many other mostly meaningless things we do with our time.
Send flowers or an old school postcard
Two things that have vanished with modern times. It's easy to just post on your friends Facebook wall. But is it really meaningful and kind? Instead send someone flowers. Just because. Or send a postcard to your grandma. She will love it, because really, she can't be bothered to read your text message ;)
