What are your New Year’s resolutions? To take better care of yourself? To make more time for friends and family? Well, what about pledging to make the world a kinder place? Injecting a little more kindness into the world can seem like a mammoth task. We all get so wrapped up in our frantic, busy lives that we forget the impact that a small, random act of kindness can achieve. If everyone took a couple of minutes every day to do something for someone else, wouldn’t the world be a much better place?

Pledging to include acts of kindness into your daily life in 2020, is a great promise that is easy to keep and accomplish. Looking for a little inspiration? Check out these 6 acts of kindness.
Organise a beach clean
We all want to do more to protect our oceans and make our beaches nicer places to visit. So, organising a beach clean is a simple and straightforward act that you can either complete yourself or get others involved in. You can print out flyers – you’ll find Epson printer ink at printerinks.com – or create a Facebook group and invite as many people as you can. Not only will the beach look better, but you’ll help protect wildlife and feel great too!
Ok, ok so it sounds little daunting. But if you’re planning on building on your fitness and health in the New Year, then it makes absolute sense to combine your health with kindness. Check out local events that are running throughout the year, and you can decide if you want to run, jog or even walk. Raising as much money as you can for a good cause is a wonderfully selfless thing to do and so many people will benefit from your effort.
Give a stranger a compliment
When you pay someone a compliment, it’s enough to brighten their day and lift their spirits. Whether it’s something subtle such as saying that you like their jacket or that you like their hair, if someone is having a really rough day, then your kind words could be enough to make them smile again. You might never know the impact and power that your compliment has made. But that’s part of the magic of it.
Bring in treats
We all work hard, and sometimes the lack of gratitude we get for a hard day’s work is enough to discourage and dishearten the best of us. So, why not show your appreciation for your co-workers? Bringing in some sweet treats for everyone to enjoy will certainly brighten up the mood in the office.
You may see someone struggling with a pram and a flight of stairs, an elderly person struggling to cross the road or someone struggling to find the right change at the till. It costs nothing to help someone who really needs it.
Whether you choose to donate to families in need over Christmas, or you donate food, old clothes, shoes and toys all the year-round when you regularly donate you’ll know that you’re making a real difference to people here and even abroad.
Have you done any of the above acts before?

I always say that giving makes me happier than receiving – I loved watching The Secret Millionaire programme and wished I could give away thousands and watch as I make people happy. But your ideas are fab Franca – and it felt great over Christmas to do some bag packing for a local charity to help raise funds for the breast cancer charity near me. I want to do more of that in 2020!

I’ve thought and done most of these things except for organising a beach. Living in the city you don’t think of the sea much. But it’s important to look after our planet and nature and I believe this to be a fantastic idea to think of and do in 2020!
Yes I agree too, we need to take more care of our planet this year 🙂
Love this! I’m all for acts of kindness. I try to do at least one kind thing a day for someone else 😀
There’s something amazing about being on the receiving end of an act of kindness which makes me smile for days. Kindness costs nothing, but means everything 🙂
