Today is Random Act of Kindness Day, I’m sure you all remember a year ago when Caroline Flack very sadly took her life and the hate and abuse she experienced online prior to this.
I remember how touched I felt when I heard the news and how sad that yet another life has been lost when with just a little bit of kindness could have potentially been saved.
Many acts of kindness are simple, and it is easy to forget how much of a positive impact they can have. This period of lockdown restrictions is a difficult time for us all and our kind deeds and words can really help brighten up someone’s day.
I am a passionate believer in the importance of taking care of our mental health and wellbeing now more than ever, doing or saying something kind has the power to make others feel better and also make ourselves feel better.
I am pleased that we are more aware today of the importance of being kind.
In marking the day, I would encourage everyone to think of kind things they can do, no matter how small, to make someone else feel a little bit better.
