Random Acts of Kindness

17th February is Random Acts of Kindness Day.

“Kind words and actions can seem so small, but their effects are truly endless.” (Unknown)

Engaging in random acts of kindness has a positive effect on mental health and wellbeing on both sides.

Being kind and helping others promotes positive and powerful physiological impacts in the brain and is associated with increased happiness. Random acts of kindness can also help us to feel more connected and therefore help reduce feelings of isolation or loneliness. Being kind and considerate can also help support a more positive outlook and perspective.

Random Acts of Kindness can include:

Donating to charity

Let somebody know you are thinking of them or care

Helping somebody with their shopping

Leave somebody a random positive note or card

Giving to the homeless

Play with your pet or offer to take care of somebody else


Give somebody a compliment


Offering to help out your neighbours

Picking up litter

Smile at strangers, say ‘hello’

Offering to pay for somebody coffee

Check in with somebody just to ask them how they are

Send a friend or loved one a surprise gift

Be friendly and talk to people you meet during the day

Offer up your seat to somebody who may need it

Pop into a neighbours

Give other drivers way

Express thanks or gratitude to somebody else

Remember to be kind to yourself too. Talk to yourself kindly and treat yourself and others well. It’s not just about being kind to others - be sure to allow yourself to receive kindness from others too.

Happy Random Acts of Kindness Day!
