“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” – Lady Diana, Princess of Wales

 

When you are kind to others, not only are you spreading positivity in their lives, but also helping yourself develop a more positive attitude and be happy in life. According to a study, when a group of students were assigned to participate in random acts of kindness, their levels of happiness increased by many folds. Though making the conscious decision to make kindness a habit may seem a bit difficult at first, with time it can become a part of your daily routine. 

 

As one of the leading retirement homes in India that promote positive ageing, we share with you a few tips to make kindness a habit: 

 

  • Know what kindness means to you: 

 

Kindness can mean different things to different people. For some, kindness could be accepting others as they are whereas for some it may mean being thoughtful of the needs and feelings of others. Understanding kindness can make it easy to practice. 

 

  • Start with random acts of kindness: 

 

You can take little steps every day to ensure that you are being kind every single day. It could be something as simple as complimenting a friend or leaving the door for the person behind you. The words may seem insignificant but they can make someone’s day. 

 

  • Spread kindness through a warm smile: 

 

One of the easiest things to do is — smile. Make a conscious effort to smile. Practice smiling at familiar faces and experience positivity. The more you practise smiling, the more it will become a natural reaction rather than a conscious act. It has been found that people who are cheerful have better social relationships as smiling faces communicate an invitation to interact.
