Acts of Kindness - Online and Offline - Imago Relationships North America

We all wish for a better and kinder world, less social media bashing and more likes that translate in our real lives. As simple as it sounds, it takes just one person to start the process of that type of change. It's possible to have a kinder world when we all work together to use mindfulness in striving to create a better world.  

First things first - start with ourselves, our families and our neighbors. Second, branch out to colleagues, service people and anyone you meet along your daily online and offline journey. Start today and watch your acts of kindness spread!

    1. Go through one full day with zero complaining. None at all, not even in your head.

    2. Hold the door open for a mom with a stroller, a person with a cane - someone in need.

    3. Contact local schools and libraries to donate books. 

    4. Take joy in being one of the first to welcome a brand new co-worker or neighbor.

    5. Practice self-kindness and slowly eat your lunch that's rich in nutrients. 

    6. Don't text, email or use social media to communicate with your older loved ones - pick up the phone and call to connect with them. 

    7. Pick a charity you enjoy and call to volunteer one hour a month. Maybe it's a senior center, or a library. You decide what you love and donate your time. 

    8. Be mindful and focus on sharing your appreciation and gratitude of others and compliment 10 people - both online and offline. 

    9. Share, like and post only joyful images on all your social media accounts.  

    10. Let a parent with a cart full of groceries go ahead of you in the grocery store line.

    11. If you take a bridge to work, pay for the driver behind you. 

    12. Pay for the person's order in the drive through line behind you.  

We hope these 12 ideas help you share more kindness online and offline today. Spread the joy and think like the Dalai Lama: "Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible." 

Commit to a week, a month or even a year! Focus on slowing down to enjoy the moments of kindness you share with others.

Together, we can work toward a kinder world, so start today to spread a little joy and kindness.
