5 Acts of Kindness to Do Today!

If you’ve ever been the recipient of a kind act, you know how it can absolutely make someone's day. Everyone (including you) is caught up in the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives which can leave them feeling frustrated, tired, and in a horrible mood for {sometimes} no reason at all. Today we’re coming at you with FIVE random acts of kindness that can easily be done TODAY! Accept the challenge to do one of these acts today and put a bright smile on someone’s face.
.
1. Pay it Forward 
Whether you’re in the drive-thru for your favorite soda or standing in line at a Chick-fil-a, paying for the person behind you is easy peasy lemon squeezy! Just let the cashier/worker know that you’d like to pay for the next person + car and they should be able to take care of the rest. We promise that it will make their day, whoever they are! 
2. Really Listen to Someone
You may think someone is just complaining or nagging, but have you ever truly paid attention to what someone is saying? When someone talks their heart out to you, don’t use your phone or zone out. Invest a few minutes and really listen to them! Go the extra mile, give them 100% of your attention, and only offer advice if they ask for it.

3. Handwrite a Letter to a Friend
You can easily send an email or a text, but nothing beats a good ol’ fashioned handwritten letter. You can just say hi, tell them why you admire them, or reminisce about all your favorite memories with them. No matter what you write, a hand-written message spreads warmth and love like nothing else! Make it fun by treating yourself to cute cards or stationary and don’t forget to mention how much you love them! They will cherish your card forever!

4. Like + Save + Share on Social Media
Even though our worth isn’t dependent on it, liking, saving and sharing posts on social media can make someone's day! Standing out on Instagram for small businesses isn’t easy. So when someone like you shares + tags a post that really resonates with you, the makers behind the post do backflips! Social media can be discouraging so don’t wait to share the positive things you’re seeing and spread a little bit of that light! It’ll mean the world to the creator!
5. Let Someone into Your Lane 
If you’ve been on the road today, you know it’s a jungle out there! Road rage is too real and we could all use a little more kindness when we’re driving to and fro. The next time you see someone trying to merge or even waiting to turn, let them! {being mindful of traffic laws, of course!} When a person is kind to you on the road, it makes your whole day a little bit brighter. And chances are, they’ll pass it on and be kind to the next person who needs it.   
.   
Life can get a little wild, and a little casual kindness goes a long way. Challenge yourself today or this week to try one or all of these acts of kindness! We’re confident that the recipients will truly appreciate your gesture and will hopefully keep the kindness going! What random acts of kindness have you seen? Let us know below!
