As we head towards Christmas, it's an excellent chance to lead into the holiday season with a bit of love and kindness in mind.
It’s been a rough year for a lot of people and as we head toward the end here are some ways to add a little kindness back into the world.
Buy gifts that give back to communities in need
Supporting local business is more important than ever at the moment, and you can make a real difference in the lives of others this year by purchasing presents from businesses and services doing it tough. It could be buying vouchers from local businesses such as bookstores, restaurants or locally-owned shops.
It’s true what they say; when you buy from a small business an actual person does a happy dance.
Volunteer your time in your community
Roll up your sleeves and assist a charity during its busiest time of the year. This year volunteers are down due to vulnerable members of the community not being able to volunteers as they usually are able too.
Lend a helping hand if you can spare some time.
Invite a friend for Christmas lunch
We have all gotten a taste of what it's like to be isolated and or lonely this year, and that is why it's vital to reach out to your friends and colleagues who may not have anyone to spend Christmas day with.
Invite a friend over to share the day with your family.
Make a donation
Donations to local charities are really down this year as a lot of people struggle with financial fatigue and stress. If you can this year, donate to a local charity. Every little bit counts, no matter how small.
When you are out shopping, at a restaurant or café, try and be extra kind this year. It's been a tough year and a kind smile, a compliment or keeping your frustration in check if you have to wait in a cue for a little longer than usual this year goes a long way.
Try and treat others how you would like to be treated yourself.
