Random Acts of Kindness Week

This week is Random Acts of Kindness Week. 

A few suggestions:

For everyone:
Smile!  It will make you feel better and everyone around you feel better.

For your neighborhood:  
Go for a walk, take a sack and some gloves and pick up trash.

For the earth:
Use a reusable mug when getting your coffee fix for the day and choose an organic, fair trade, shade grown coffee.

For a stranger:
If someone has less items than you at the grocery store, offer to let them check out before you.

For wildlife:
Don't harass them.  Keep dogs on leash or under voice command at all times, keep cats indoors or put a small bell on their collars and teach the children in your life to look, admire and respect the wild creatures around them.

For family:
Do one of the tasks or chores that you know is a family members least favorite.

For your neighbors dogs: 
Put a bowl of water out near your home for those walking their dogs.  Even better- pick up some healthy organic dog treats and place them in a waterproof container with a sign explaining that they are there for the doggies to enjoy.

For yourself:  Choose healthy and tasty options for your meals and take the time to just eat and enjoy the food.
