Kindness Ideas

Thank Someone Every Week
Write 52 thank you notes each year, one every week to a different person.

Gratitude improves relationships, physical health, self-esteem, and your mindset. Start an annual gratitude tradition and write 52 thank you notes, one for every week of the year. You’ll feel great. The recipients will feel great. And the world will be a little kinder.
