Turn someone’s bad day into a brilliant one, with these random acts of kindness that will leave someone smiling long after you’ve left the room. 

Random acts of kindness take very little effort, yet have the potential to change someone’s day for the better! If you’ve ever had someone do something kind for you – be it a stranger, a loved one, or a work colleague – you will know just how marvellous and magic a random act of kindness can be, and how it can turn a bad day into a pretty brilliant one! Perform one of these simple acts of kindness today, and you will leave someone with a smile that lasts long after you’ve left the room.

For some time now I have been wanting to buy the groceries for the person in front of me at the supermarket – somebody who looks like they could really use the extra help that week. Whilst I know this is not a small act of kindness, there are many equally as meaningful ways to make a difference. Check out these sweet and simple ideas for boosting someone’s spirits, and sending good vibes out into the world…
