Challenge and Reflection: Random Acts of Kindness

Try to perform at least three random acts of kindness this week. Include something that you haven't done before. Exercise a new kindness muscle!

Some ideas:

  • If you don't do much housework, try a new chore that would benefit someone else, vacuum clean, tidy up the backyard, etc.
  • Share what you have learned through this course with a friend.
  • Call a relative or a neighbor whom you haven't spoken to in a while. Especially if they live alone, or don't have many friends. Ask how they are doing and practice active listening.
  • Drop by a colleague's office for no reason.
  • Leave a surprise in your mailbox for your mail carrier, like a gift certificate or a thank you note.
  • Offer "how-to" advice to a new student at school or a new colleague a work. It's not easy being the new kid on the block.
  • Ask a check-out clerk/waitress how they are doing and actively listen to their response.
