The 4 Acts

The 4 Acts of Kindness:

  1. Kindness to Self
  2. Kindness to Others
  3. Kindness to Strangers
  4. Kindness to Our Planet

It is my hope that you will join me in practicing the 4 Acts of Kindness everyday. As an example of how to practice the 4 Acts of Kindness, let’s look at the subject of complimenting:

  1. Look in the mirror and compliment yourself, then take it a step further and try to be kind and tender with your self-talk and the way you treat yourself for the day.
  2. Individually compliment each of your loved ones, family members and friends. Try for one entire day to compliment your children, spouse and loved ones rather than criticize or control.
  3. Compliment a stranger on their smile or outfit or their kind gesture to hold a door open.
  4. Compliment our earth on all the wonderful and beautiful things, plants and creatures she provides.

I think you get the idea. And then the next day, try gratitude. And then the following day, check back here for additional ideas on how to find, create and live the 4 Acts of Kindness.
