- Compliment your friends or random people.
Tell someone you like their outfit, or they have a great smile or tell them they are smart and ambitious. Being complimented is one of the best feelings in the world and can make someone happy for the whole day.
2. Say good morning to people you see on your walk to class.
This is a friendly and easy way to make a stranger’s day.
3. Pay it forward at Saxby’s or Starbucks.
If you haven’t heard of this concept, it occurs when you pay for the person’s item or coffee behind you. It is a sweet little surprise.
4. Write a handwritten note to your friend or favorite professor.
This shows the person that they are appreciated and doing a good job or being a great person.
5. Say thank you to someone you appreciate.
Saying thank you is a kind and sweet way to show someone that you care for them and recognize how they impact your life.
6. Make someone smile.
Smiling is contagious and can make someone feel happy. This can happen by telling a joke, a story or just by talking to them.
7. Send an uplifting text to a friend or family member.
This is a great way to make someone’s day who you cannot see everyday. I like to send my best friend from home a small little text each day to inspire her to keep going and to show her my appreciation of her!
Let’s make kindness here at Millersville the norm. Being kind to those around you will create a fun and friendly environment. “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”
