Kindness 101: What Is Kindness and How Do You Teach It?

What is the meaning of kindness?


According to the dictionary ...


Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.


But kindness means so much more ...


Kindness can mean different things to different people. The meaning is in how YOU choose to show it. Be it through empathy, acceptance, kind gestures, thoughtfulness, the possibilities are entirely up to you. Kindness might look like being helpful or showing empathy. It may mean doing nice things without expecting nice things in return

87 Ways to Be Kind and Loving

Grrrr.


How to be kind seems simple enough. But sometimes it feels impossible to be kind and loving, don’t you think? We get so angry and frustrated at events happening in our lives that we cannot access that loving place inside of us. Instead, our eyes go from side to side as our fists clench and minds whirl with angry thoughts. Some of us even spew those thoughts out into the world with our talk and our actions.


Or sometimes we just don’t know what to do. We have a nagging feeling that we need to be doing something, but we’re just not sure what.


When this happens, I always like to sit down and take a moment to reflect. I know that, when you love someone, there must be a better way and that the best antidote to these feelings is to act loving even if I don’t feel very much like doing so. And sometimes I just need a little more help – some prompts, ideas, things to get me going, to shift my emotions. So I made this list of 87 ways to be kind and loving. So next time you feel stuck and are unsure how to be kind in that moment, check this list and you will definitely find something to get you moving in the right direction.


Please share this list freely because there just can’t be too much kindness and love in the world.
