One thing I have learned on the way to acquiring the ability to perform random acts of kindness is that it requires practice and creativity. I have already shown you some ways to begin your own world-improvement practice, but perhaps you are still not convinced. Doing something for others need not require much effort at all. It does not have to cost a cent either. Let’s look at some of the ways in which you can easily reach out and make someone’s day better. You can never have too many good examples.
- Smile at a stranger.
- Encourage someone who is in trouble.
- Give a word of praise to someone who least expects it, like your boss.
- Have the elevator ready for someone who is in a hurry.
- Read a story to a child.
- Listen to someone’s complaint.
- Say thank you very much.
- Share a friend’s creative work in social media.
- Call someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time just to say hello.
- Leave a blog comment when you read a post that really appeals to you.
