12 Kind Things You Can Do Every Day

In the wake of #YoungmanOnEllen, I’ve thought a lot about how to share kindness within the world.

Senora Youngman is constantly teaching how to spread kindness and to be nice in our everyday lives. With that said, I thought a lot about how I want to share kindness to people through how I interact with others. Which led me to think about what are nice things that can help others. And I came up with a list of 12 things that I believe are super easy and spread niceness into the atmosphere.

Here’s the list!

12 Easy Ways to Spread Kindness, in Honor of Senora Youngman

1. Compliment

Tell someone you like their shirt, or that they did well on that test, or even that you admire the way they dealt with that negative compliment.

2. Go out of your way

Hold open a door. You never know when someone really needs that in their day.

3. Smile

That best way to spread kindness is to put it on your face. Smile at everyone and be a positive face in a face full of frowns.

4. Be honest

Being honest with someone is much kinder than lying. And you don’t have to be blunt, but if you’re honest with someone they will appreciate it much more.

5. Listen

Take time to listen to someone else who needs to rant/talk. The fact that you’re taking the time probably means more than they’re showing.

6. Stop judgment

Stop saying judgmental things like, “She’s a whore,” or “That top is really ugly.” That’s just spreading hate and will not be tolerated.

7. Stand strong

Even if you’re in a room full of people being negative and putting others down, continue to say nice things and push against the negative behavior.

8. Lead, don’t follow

Don’t wait until someone else says something. Be the first to say the nice thing, the first to open the door, the first to stop something bad.

9. Encourage

Encouraging people is one of the kindest things you can do, and it isn’t difficult at all. Encourage others in their actions and dreams and they will never forget you.

10. Be present

Don’t look at your phone or your nails when someone is telling you something. Focus on the conversation and show the person that you are worth it to them to put down your phone for a few minutes.

11. Follow through

Did you friend tell you something that has been upsetting them? Take a few days and then reach out to them and ask how they’re doing. Following through on your kindness is just as important as doing it.

12. Spread it constantly

BE KIND AT ALL TIMES AND OTHERS WILL FOLLOW AND OTHERS WILL FOLLOW THEM AND EVENTUALLY WE WILL ALL BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER


Stay classy, Internet,
