November is, not only the month for being thankful, it is also the month for being kind. World Kindness Day is Friday, November 13. That means kindness is not limited to one person, one city, one state, one country, or one continent. It is without borders and age requirements!
Kindness can also take on many forms and does not have to be extravagant. It is not reserved only for grownups to practice but can be shown by toddlers and centenarians alike! Does it cost money to be kind? No!
Due to COVID-19, we have to be careful and remember to socially distance and wear a mask. Here are some acts of kindness that you can do taking those things into consideration:
- Help with setting the table before dinner or clearing it after.
- Share your favorite toy or stuffed animal with your sister or brother.
- Clean up after playing with your toys or playing a game.
- Read to your younger brother or sister.
- Remember to put your dirty clothes in the hamper and not on the floor of your room.
- Let a friend or classmate get in line before you when lining up at school.
- Let a stranger go ahead of you in line.
- Walk or bike with the kids to school instead of driving them.
- Put a positive message on a post-it note and leave it on a co-worker's desk or on a neighbor’s front door.
- Text or call a relative or a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while.
- Be a courteous and kind driver
- Hold the door open for someone.
