Random Act of Kindness to Try Today

Kindness is one of the most beautiful and powerful things in the world.

It is free to give and has the ability to change the whole experience of a day. A simple act of kindness can bring joy, hope and comfort to someone's life. Random acts of kindness are spontaneous acts of generosity that can be performed by anyone, anywhere, at any time. Kindness is the JSHealth way!

Random acts of kindness don't have to be grand gestures or require a lot of time or money. In fact, some of the most impactful acts of kindness are simple and easy to do. Here are a few ideas for random acts of kindness that you can perform today:

  • Compliment someone - A simple compliment can brighten someone's day and make them feel good about themselves.
  • Buy someone a coffee or a meal - Offer to buy someone a coffee or a meal, especially if you see someone who looks like they could use a little pick-me-up. It could be someone you know or even a stranger at your local cafe!
  • Hold the door open - Holding the door open for someone is a small act of kindness that can make a big difference in someone's day.
  • Leave a note of encouragement - Write a note of encouragement and leave it for someone you love or perhaps in public for someone you don’t even know to find. You never know how much it may be needed.
  • Give up your seat - If you're on a bus or a train and you see someone who looks like they could use a seat more than you, graciously offer it to them.
  • Offer to help someone - Ask someone if they need help with anything, whether it's carrying their groceries or helping them with a task.
  • Smile - A smile is contagious and can brighten someone's day. It radiates love and warmth!

The best thing about spreading kindness is that it feels as good to give as it does to receive. So, sprinkle it around like confetti and watch how it makes the world a better place.
