Engaging in acts of kindness boosts mental health by fostering feelings of fulfilment, connection, and purpose, promoting a positive mindset and reducing stress.

On this page, you can find a range of tips and ideas to help you with kindness.

Acts of Kindness 

  • Compliments: Boost your own and others’ spirits by offering compliments to friends, loved ones, and even yourself through affirmations or acknowledging positive aspects in the mirror. 
  • Quality Time: Foster better connections by spending time with loved ones or practicing self-care. Allocating time for yourself promotes positivity. 
  • Smile: Share positivity by smiling at strangers, spreading joy without expecting anything in return. The simple act can be infectious in a positive way. 
  • Offer Help: Extend a helping hand by assisting someone in need, but always prioritize “Kindness with consent” by first offering assistance and co-collaborating to understand their specific needs. 
  • Chat: Engage in conversation with others to promote social connection, but ensure confidence in mutual consent. Striking up a conversation with someone new might lead to unexpected connections. 
  • Check-In: Show kindness by asking others how they are and holding space for their responses. A simple check-in can be a vital lifeline for someone feeling isolated.
