It’s hard to control it, that smile that creeps across your face when someone unexpectedly does something nice for you. Even the smallest gesture can have a large impact. The effects of kindness are profound and far-reaching. Studies have shown that kindness has scientific benefits, not only for the recipients, but also for those who commit and witness kind acts.
Random Acts of Kindness Day is Sunday, February 17. This is an excellent opportunity to spread a little joy to others. Think about what you can do for those in your family, workplace, school, and community. You don’t need to limit kindness to loved ones and acquaintances, there are many things you can do for strangers too. If you’re having trouble coming up with ideas, check out these suggestions.

While Random Acts of Kindness Day is a perfect opportunity to celebrate kindness, don’t forget, every day is a great day to make others smile!
