5 Random Acts Of Kindness To Carry Out Today

The time has come when we cannot simply rely on others to make the world a better place – each of us must do our part. It is, therefore, time that people are increasingly aware of their social responsibility.

Personal Social Responsibility is about doing to others what you would like them to do to you. It’s about recognizing how your behavior affects others and holding yourself accountable for your actions.

Kindness is contagious – and as part of personal social responsibility, you may want to consider engaging in random acts of kindness daily.

1. Donate!

You could donate clothing or other items to people in need. Sometimes, we tend to hoard things we no longer need when others would deserve more from their ownership than us. Give that tee to the homeless person, and you’d be pleased that you have contributed to humanity.

2. Give Unexpected Compliments To Strangers

You can be kind by simply saying something nice to someone. We all move around our daily activities, and some of us have burdens we go about with.

Yes, you have yours to deal with but paying a compliment to that random stranger or even the waiter that served you might be all they needed to make their day a better one. How would you feel receiving unexpected compliments?

3. Surprise The Workers Outside

If you go through a route where you always find workers, choose a fine day to surprise them. You could get them a meal or even bottles of water. It may not mean anything to you, but it would definitely go a long way for them.

4. Send Someone A Handwritten Note

In this digital age, it is little wonder that many have forgotten the value of good penmanship, especially one that comes from the heart and is well written. If you have excellent-looking handwriting, that’s a bonus point.

5. Buy A Motivational Book For A Friend Or Someone Random

If you have read a book that changed your life, touched you, or transformed your thought process, why not share that book. You can decide to have the book wrapped and shipped to a friend anonymously or even hand it to a stranger on the bus.
