Write Positive Sticky Notes
A simple and quick way to bright up someone's day

Grab a stack of sticky notes and spend five minutes writing positive statements on them. Then place the sticky notes anywhere that needs a little kindness like an office, a bus stop, a gas pump, a parked car, a hallway, or hidden around your home!

Here are a few phrases to get you started:

  • You know who’s awesome? Read that first word again.
  • Throw kindness around like confetti.
  • Hey, you’re great.
  • One kind word can change someone’s entire day.
  • Be the reason someone smiles today.
  • Psst…you’re awesome.

At work I created a Kindness Inspiration Corner. It is right inside the doors as you walk in. It has positive quotes, happiness cards, and photos that bring a smile to peoples faces. As people walk by they are allowed to take any of the sayings, photos, cards with them for themselves or someone they know that might need something to brighten their day. They are also encouraged to leave notes for others. It has begun a wonderful ripple effect throughout our offices.

This is so awesome! I made some and placed them all around my house for my family members to find. They loved finding them just as much as I loved making them!

I leave random messages to people I work with all the time - The other day I witnessed someone I left a message for crying....when I asked her what was wrong -She said she came in and saw the message and after having a hard troubling day that was exactly what she needed. Made me feel amazing. That I was able to make her day end with a great feeling. I didn't tell her it was me.

My 3rd graders did this on World Kindness day 2018 by writing post it notes to teachers saying what we were grateful for. My students decided one day was not enough so we are now doing it every day and including students!!

Being kind is so.dang.easy. And this is a great example of how easy (& cheap) it is to be kind. I opened up a fresh pack of sticky notes I had lying around my house & divided them into 5 stacks. I had 90 sticky notes, so each day (five days) I put 18 out. I never went out of my way to post sticky notes. I felt it was more natural to leave them places I was going that given day. I left them in stores, unwritten notebooks, bathrooms, dressing rooms (ex sticky note message: Girl those clothes look good on you!), restaurants, gas pumps, city street benches, & much much more!!

Sometimes, when I notice someone is upset,stressed, or in need of encouragement, I leave an anonymous note in their locker with an inspirational quote or compliment.
