Nice: More Than Just A City In France

This weekend, I’m challenging you (and me!) to perform at least five random acts of niceness. These small acts won’t cost you a thing but the pay-off on the receiving end will be priceless. Remembering to smile at a stranger might not sound like a true task, but sometimes we get so caught up in our to-do lists we forget to take a beat to be nice, just because.

Below are some of the acts of niceness I will make an extra effort to act on this weekend:

• Smile or say “Hello!” when making eye contact with a stranger.

• Hand out high fives.

• Compliment someone on their style.

• Open doors for others.

• When leaving a tip for a waitress, also leave a note of praise.

What other nice ideas do you guys have? Who else is with me on this challenge??

  • I love this! Very simple, but effective ways to spread kindness. I’d also like to note, that when you smile and say hello to strangers, don’t get discouraged if you don’t get acknowledged back, just keep on smiling. 🙂

  • I am right there with you, Jules!! {can I call you that??} These random acts if kindness are so easy to do yet can make such a huge impact on someone’s day! Love!!

  • Yesss! I love this! Oh and something so simple: Listen to the other person when he/she is telling something, even if they’re strangers. Don’t blab right through their conversation and let them finish. And don’t make everything your problem, as in “Oh, but my brother had a friend who had that too.” (Conversation turned to you). Little respect 🙂

    Love this! Being kind is the easiest way to make yourself feel good!

    Blooms are popping up all over as the weather warms up! Cut some fresh flowers and give to a loved one. We can also underestimate the power of cooking a home made meal from scratch. A personal favorite random act of kindness I like is called the “drive through payment”, where you pay for the persons meal behind you. Happy weekend! Have fun doing nice deeds! ?

    At the store, I helped a woman reach the mouthwash on the top shelf.

  • Adrianna Boen

    Pay for the person behind you in line at a coffee shop.
    Write little 2-3 sentence encouragement notes for coworkers.
    I just read this so will definitely be starting this this week! Thanks for the challenge Jules!

    That is my thing. I always try to be nice. Just an honest compliment about an outfit or hairstyle is always appreciated. Or just to listen activly, trying to really understand what the other person wants to say. Giving smiles or little eye twinkles to strangers. Trying to help somebody at my office, even though it would be someone else’s job, but I can do it too and love to do it. Bringing so e self made food to the office is another nice liitle treat.
