Kindness Challenge

Kindness Challenge 2020

Kindness is scientifically proven to increase energy, make you feel happier, lower your blood pressure, and it might help you live longer. It can also reduce pain, stress, anxiety, and depression. Plus, kindness is contagious! The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to “pay it forward.”

The challenge: Show kindness every day Nov 10 - 14!

Tuesday - Show kindness to a co-worker (Write a thank you note, offer a compliment, help with a project, etc.)

Wednesday - Show kindness to your self (Get a massage, read a book, disconnect, do something you love, snuggle with a pet, etc.)

Thursday - Show kindness to your community (Support a local business, pay for the car behind you in the drive thru, hold the door open, etc.)

Friday - Show kindness to the world (Pick up litter, recycle, support a charity, etc.)

Saturday - Show kindness to your friends & family (Call a relative, tell your partner why you love him/her, spend time together via zoom, etc.)
