Random Acts of Kindness Day is intended as a way for people to do something nice for others even if they have no reason to do so, and especially if nothing is expected in return. Some people don’t participate in this day because they feel they don’t have the time or resources to help anyone else out. But a random act of kindness can be surprisingly easy to do, no matter where you are or what you’re doing.
RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS IN THE CAR
Nothing is simpler than performing a random act of kindness while you’re seated comfortably in your car, going where you want to go. Try one of these:
When you’re in line to pay your road toll, give the toll booth operator an extra few quarters to pay for whomever comes up next behind you. Toll booth operators are always happy to facilitate, and witnessing this simple random act of kindness makes their day a little brighter, too.
You’re in a long line of heavy traffic, and no one will let this one car into the lane from the driveway they’re exiting. Why not hang back and wave them in front of you? It won’t impact your time in the car, but it will help the other driver get on their way a little bit faster.
RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS AT THE GROCERY STORE
The supermarket is filled with strangers, so it’s the perfect place to test out your superpowers for performing random acts of kindness.
As you exit your vehicle on a windy day, you notice that a shopping cart is rolling ominously toward a car in the next lane. Why not hurry on over and stop it before it dents a stranger’s vehicle?
