Every year on 17 February Random Acts of Kindness Day celebrates the impact of being kind.
Research from the Mental Health Foundation shows that being kind to other people can help us feel better ourselves. Kindness can improve our mental health by reducing stress, bringing a sense of belonging and it can even benefit our physical health.
So how can we be kind?
The Random Acts of Kindness organisation has created a workplace kindness calendar for 2021, with a daily idea for being kind and a monthly activity for teams at work to use to celebrate kindness.
Kindness doesn't need to be a big deal and it's often best when it's something simple. Today ask yourself, how you could do something kind for someone else.
And how could you be kind to yourself?
