Day 83: Kindness Advent Calendar (2015)

Being kind by creating an Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar so everyone can take part and spread some festive kindness:

Today I’ve put the finishing touches to my Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you.

I was inspired by a lovely friend forwarding me a fab one for children a couple of days ago, and I thought it’d be great to create one for us grown ups.

So I set to work and this is the result:

And I’d like to invite lovely you and yours to join me in doing a kindness act every day for the 25 days leading up to Christmas.

It works just like a normal advent calendar but instead of receiving, we are giving.

How cool is that!

Now, I know December is an extra busy month for most of us, and we can find ourselves rushing around trying to get everything ready in time for the Christmas holidays.

So, I’ve tried to make each kindness act:

  • Quick: most days it will just take a few seconds, and a couple may take a few minutes,
  • Easy: they don’t really take too much effort or energy to do at all, and
  • Cheap: well, actually most of them don’t cost a thing, and a couple cost the price of a cup of coffee or chocolate bar in the vending machine.

This way, anyone and everyone can take part.

You may want to mix it up and swap the acts around, or even make up your own kindness acts. And don’t worry if you can’t do an act of kindness every single day, sometimes it’s just not possible as I know too well with the nature of my CFS flare ups.

But even if every one of us manages to do just one kindness act on one day – imagine how amazing that would be!

It’s such a wonderful way to spread some festive cheer and boost our own spirits at the same time.

But I really need your help.

Please help me spread the word by encouraging family, friends and colleagues to take part in this kindness extravaganza as we countdown to Christmas.

And I’d be ever so grateful if you could share this blog post with others – simply click on one of the ‘share’ buttons below, or share it however works best for you – and let’s get the kindness ripple effect reaching out far and wide over the festive season.

And most of all, remember to have fun and enjoy creating a kindness ripple effect in your community.

Thank you so very much.

  1. I missed this for all 25 days so I am coping it for my new year resolution. I can add on the rest of days good deeds for each month. It would be a good feeling resolution for 2017 and not a negative “I have to do ” that will fail. Be kind to yourself in 2017.

  2. Love this Helen! Even though I do some of these things regularly I think there’s something extra special about ticking them off as you go, done with more intent so happy days. Thank you! XॐX

    1. That’s wonderful lovely Beth and you’ve very welcome 🙂 It’s surprising how many we do already, and agree it’s great to acknowledge them and be kind to ourselves too Xxx

  3. Helen what a fabulous idea! I love it. I was just reading through the acts of kindness and realise I do mmpany of these things on a daily basis but there are some super ideas here that are new to me as well. I feel great when I let someone out in traffic and I’ve noticed I’m sharing a lot more smiles with other drivers.

    Big love and big hugs

    1. Thank you lovely Julia, and it’s wonderful that you’re creating your own kindness ripple effect without even realising. Love and hugs to you too Xxx
