After a while being at home can start to feel boring and repetitive, so one way to spread a little cheer and boost everyone’s mood is random acts of kindness.
The key to a random act of kindness is to keep it a surprise, to spread cheer when they’re least expecting it. A couple of weeks ago I read Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith and it reminded me how one random act of kindness can be the start of a whole movement, like a chain of kindness. Here are a couple of ideas for what you could do:
- Chores – Do some chores that you’re not scheduled to do, that could be doing someone else’s or getting a head start on tomorrow’s
- Cook someone their favourite meal or bake a tasty treat
- Let someone else have your time slot on the computer, games console or tv
- If you have a bathtub, you can run them a nice relaxing bath
- Have a movie night and let them choose the movie
- Buy them a treat, maybe their favourite candy or something they have been saving up for, or get crafty and make them something special
- Help them with their work or a project because teamwork makes everything (usually) go a lot faster and little more enjoyable
One of the things I will be doing today is baking some more Shortbread Hearts for my mum as they are her favourite treat! I posted my recipe last month for Mother’s Day, click here if you’d like to give it a read.
