Spread Kindness

With life a little bit crazier (and crankier) than normal these days, it is more important than ever to spread kindness. We all need to do our part to bring the world some joy.

When you see that frustrated mama in line behind you with a fussy baby in the store, let her go in front of you, even if she has a full cart.

You see that homeless person sitting in the doorway? If it is cold out, bring them a cup of hot chocolate. If it is hot, bring them a bottle of cold water. Even better, how about a hot meal?

Do you see trash in your local park or on the trails? Pick it up.

Check on your elderly neighbor. Ask what you can do to help them. Run an errand? Rake their leaves?

When you get good service anywhere, take the time to not just say thank you but tell their manager as well. Let them know they are appreciated.

Don’t just ask someone how they’re doing, actually wait for their answer and listen.

Leave a bigger tip than you normally would.

Take the time to smile.

    An act of kindness at anytime is always good but during these stressful times it could mean even more to someone on the brink of loosing it.

    To quote our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry:
    “Be Calm, Be Kind, Be Safe”
