There is so much anxiety and frustration with our elected leaders. In August, I hope you can step back some frustration, be kind to yourself, and be kind to the people in your world. Let’s work to make things happier and kinder. Below are my actions for more kindness and happiness. Also, Action For Happiness has a new Altruistic August calendar. See below.
These are my August Actions. They will make you happy !
Action For Happiness has a new calendar for May. I Hope your May is meaningful, and that you get outside to do something you love everyday. Going for a walk, time in my yard, and peaceful bike rides make me happy. What outside activities make you happy? Enjoy!
December kindness continues:
This my third post on December Kindness. I hope you can help spread some kindness this week. Kindness is a sustainable behavior. How can we all make our communities more kind and pleasant?
** Show gratitude, “Thank You!”
** Take a walk, focus on the beauty of winter.
** Make a special effort to watch for pedestrians when you drive.
** Positive Energy Day: Be positive to your family, and those you encounter at work. Admit if you make a mistake!
** Listen with eye contact
** Use real dishes and silverware, reuse. Think, “Zero waste!”
** Complement People Day!
** Sacrifice Your Place In Line Day!
** Shovel or sweep someone’s sidewalk.
Eight more ways you can spread kindness. These are my ideas for a kinder week for us all: Friday, December 8, Celebrate Friday by smiling at people. Saturday, December 9, Bring your reusable bags shopping, and be kind to the earth. Sunday, December 10, Practice forgiveness. Monday December 11, Start the week right and donate to a local food shelf. Second Harvest Tuesday, December 12, Think of that person you have been meaning to call for a while, and dial them for a positive chat. Wednesday, December 13, Be kind to the earth and donate to Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Thursday, December 14, Make it a zero landfill waste day: Recycle, compost, and reuse. Friday, December 15, Friday gratitude: Today think of the people you are thankful for in your life.
Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.
