Because I’ve been consumed with my technology issues, I let Random Acts of Kindness Week slip by me last week.

Given the negativity that surrounds us in person and online, I think it’s important to recognize that small gestures can make a big difference, whether or not there’s an “official” day.

You don’t have to spend money to extend a kindness. You can make feel someone feel good with a thoughtful word or gesture, which also improves your mood. On a list of 50 things you can do to brighten someone’s day, you might find one you can do regularly. Or consider trying a new act of kindness each week. You can find more ideas and interact with other people, if you want to share your accomplishments.

While you’re at it, when was the last time you were kind to yourself? #50 on the list is to tell yourself something positive when you start hearing negative self-talk. When you feel better about yourself, you’re able to accomplish more.

Did you do anything for Random Acts of Kindness Week? Is there one thing you can do to be kinder to yourself?
