Want to feel free? As light as a feather? Then consider performing random acts of kindness. When we perform good acts, we feel energized, happy and blessed. We feel light as a feather! This week, we celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week. Yet, kind acts shouldn’t occur only during this week. Kindness has no restrictions. If we just open our eyes, or read our Facebook news feed, we see countless acts of kindness expressed toward others. It’s time to get off the sidelines and get in the game of performing acts of kindness. It’s easy! Here’s just a few suggestions, of which I am sure that you will come up with many more:
- Say some prayers for all those who are sick and/or in need.
- Visit the elderly and give them your full attention. Actively listen to them talk.
- Offer to babysit, for free, so that a relative or friend can have a respite.
- Smile at strangers, as you walk down the street, and see what happens in return.
- Be Christ-like in all that you do.
See Why Kindness Has No Restrictions
When we embrace kindness, we make life enjoyable, not only for the recipient of our acts, but also for ourselves. And it is scientifically proven that performing acts of kindness is good for our health! Check out this video on the science of kindness:

Isn’t it cool that kindness and love are the two things that we can give away to others, and lose nothing in return? In fact, we gain from doing both! So, not only does kindness have no restrictions, but in most instances, it costs us nothing monetarily. Take my five examples above. None of them would cost you a penny – only your time. So, if you want to feel energized, and as light as a feather, then get busy performing some random acts of kindness!
