How Can We Spread Goodness Around Us?

No matter where you are in the world, it never hurts to spread some goodness around, especially in these exceptionally trying times. Not sure where to start or how to go about accomplishing this? Read on to find out how to show kindness and compassion every day.


Yes, something as simple as a smile has the power to change a person’s entire day. Masks may make this difficult, but a smile to a passerby as you sit in your car or a smile to your neighbor as you walk to your front door can mean the world to someone.It can help spread a bit of goodness and positivity in your community as well.

Pick Up Trash

How many times have you walked outside and saw trash littering the ground? Instead of walking by it, make an effort to bring a bag and gloves with you on your next walk so you can pick up a few pieces of trash every day. Doing so can make a world of difference in your community and even inspire others to follow suit.

Share Leftovers

How many of you have leftovers sitting in the fridge that you do not know what to do with? Instead of throwing them out (like most of us end up doing), why not share them with others who may need a good meal? Pack the food up nicely and give it to a homeless person or a neighbor who might not have enough time to cook.

Express Gratitude

Expressing your gratitude is one of the easiest ways to spread goodness and positivity. A simple thank you can go a long way. Maybe someone held the door open for you or let you cut in line at the supermarket. Perhaps you saw someone stop to pick up trash or help someone else in need. It never hurts to show your gratitude in those situations.

Small Acts Of Kindness

Everyone appreciates even the smallestacts of kindness. If you know someone who is having a hard time, offer them an inspirational book that might have helped you in the past. You can even send them an e-mail with a link to a funny or interesting anecdote or blog that might cheer them up.

Remember: you donot have to spend money in order to spread kindness and goodness. It all starts with small, simple gestures and grows from there.
