Think of what represents kindness to you.

  • A loving touch
  • A compassionate attitude
  • A loving smile as you go to work on the subway or bus
  • Being polite and considerate
  • Paying full attention to the person you are talking to
  • Being kind to yourself by eliminating--or at least reducing--the negative self-talk of the “obnoxious roommate in your head.”

Choose one of the above today and do your best to demonstrate it throughout the day in small ways.
