Practice Random Acts of Kindness by Being Kind to Yourself
On October 7, 2021 by Julie Apold
The greatest act of kindness that you can practice without any cost and minimal effort is being kind to yourself. Don’t beat yourself up for things not in your control. Use kind words when you talk to yourself – do what you can, do not dwell on what you cannot. Practice kindness on yourself and being kind to others will come naturally (Ghate, 2021).
If you or your team need some additional assistance to practice kindness for yourselves, there is a menu of free resources and support available through the LeadingAge Minnesota Foundation. Happiness is contagious; pass it on!
Visit the Self Care for Safe Care site to find all the resources and tools for bringing Random Acts of Kindness to your community in September and October. This is the first of six Self Care for Safe Care activities designed to build our resilience and increase our sense of happiness and well-being.
