18th-25th May 2020 is Mental Health Awareness Week, with a particular focus on Kindness.
With this in mind, Here are a list of random ways to project kindness into the wider world, all at a safe distance! Which is something we definitely need right now.
We start our Random Acts of Kindness for Mental Health Awareness Week off with a simple one! You can even do this for a few friends and family members.
Random Act of Kindness #1: Send a motivational text to a friend who is struggling.
Random Act of Kindness #2: Smile and say hello to people you may pass everyday, but have never spoken to before.
Random Act of Kindness #3: Donate to a Food Bank.
Random Act of Kindness #4: Contact someone you haven’t seen in a while and arrange a phone catch up.
Random Act of Kindness #5: Arrange to watch a film at the same time as a friend and video call.
Random Act of Kindness 6: Send flowers and a note to someone in isolation or your know who is struggling.
Random Act of Kindness #7: Offer to skill share with a friend via video call – you could teach anything! Musical instruments, dance, fitness or crafts.

Hopefully these ideas will inspire you to spread a little kindness out into the world.
