This morning I heard that Channel 12 news here in Phoenix is starting a new segment on random acts of kindness! I was shocked but also super excited to hear that! In spirit and excitment I found this great article and thought it would be nice to share it with you!

Hold the elevator door open for someone even though you really are in a hurry to get to your appointment
Give an older person your seat on the bus or subway
Allow passengers to exit the elevator first, before you enter it
Hold the door for those carrying a large bundle or young children
Use the words “please” and “thank you” to your co-workers, your boss, your children and even the taxi driver
When speaking to your co-workers, friends, parents, children or even strangers make eye contact with them
In a conversation take the time to just listen and let the other person speak
Say “Good Morning” to your co-workers, boss, neighbors and strangers that you meet
Ask how your neighbor, friend, boss, mother, child, sister is doing and don't be in a hurry to only talk about yourself
Pick up the litter that you see lying in your neighborhood, around your school campus and on the beach
Use your turn signal when driving and be a courteous driver
Allow the person behind you in the check-out line to cut in front when they only have a few things and you have a full cart
Walk your shopping cart back to the designated stall in the parking lot
Check on an elderly neighbor just to see if they are okay
Make a pot of coffee at work or home without being asked
Bake some cookies and give some to the gardener, the postman, your child's teacher or a neighbor
Wait and then eat your meal after everyone is served
Clean up your own mess at home, in the office lounge or when eating in a fast food restaurant
Leave the porch light on until everyone arrives home safely each night
Call your mother, father or children when you reach your destination just to tell them that you arrived safely
