Random acts of kindness that boost self esteem!
Yes, random acts of kindness can boost your self-esteem. Make it a habit to do at least one kind deed every day – however small it may be – so that you can reflect at the end of the day and feel content that you made somebody’s day a little better.
#SliceOfHealth lists some random acts of kindness that you can try out.
Saying nice things to people, complimenting them can really brighten up their day.There is an added bonus to complimenting someone- it makes you feel good to say something nice to someone. It could be to anybody: your family or friends, your partner, a colleague, an acquaintance, or a complete stranger; it doesn’t matter who it is.. You could compliment a person on what they are wearing, their new haircut, your favorite qualities about them, and so on.
2. Buy a thoughtful gift for someone you care about:
You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to show someone that they immensely matter to you. Think about that person’s likes, interests, hobbies, and passions, and if you randomly think of something or see something you know they would like or need,surprise them with a gift!
3. Offer help in any way you can.
Don’t all of us struggle in all different kind of ways? But a lot of the time we tell ourselves it’s none of our business and keep our heads down. And that just doesn’t seem right. If someone is struggling with heavy bags, you could help carry them. If someone looks lost, ask if they need directions. Talk to an elderly people if they seem lonely because unfortunately, we tend to ignore those the most who suffer the most.
Thoughtful acts make you a thoughtful person, and it’s a great way to help you feel better about yourself. Plan to do one kind act everyday, for the sake of others and for your own sake.
