Kindness Challenge Week 3: Kind energy

Attention all 2016 Kindness Challenge participants!

We’re three weeks into the challenge already! We eased our way into the challenge by focusing on being kind to ourselves in week one. In week two we focused on looking for the kindness around us. This week we are going to focus our energy on being kind.

What to I mean by that? We are going to focus our thoughts and actions on coming from a place of kindness. Speaking kind words, thinking kind thoughts, and acting and reacting in kind ways. Our goal is to radiate kindness. Use the everyday opportunities in your life to come from a place of kindness, I encourage you to start at home. What better place to practice your efforts of guiding your thoughts so that your actions can come from a place of kindness?

This week’s goal is to focus your energy on being kind.

Week 3 exercises- Pick at least one of the following to help you incorporate this week’s focus in your life:

  • Think kind thoughts so that kind actions will follow
  • Accept and release thoughts that aren’t kind and replace them with kind thoughts
  • Use everyday opportunities to practice acting out of kindness
  • React with kindness especially when it’s hard to
  • Be more kind to those you live with
  • Be more kind to those you work with
  • Be more kind to those around you
  • Be kind in thoughts, actions, and words
  • Remember kindness comes in many forms: courteousness, generosity, thoughtfulness,  sympathy, empathy.

Tip: It will take practice, don’t be hard on yourself. When you find yourself correcting your thoughts and actions, do so gently. Acknowledge the room for growth and make a note to do better the next time you are presented with an opportunity to act or react with kindness.

Week 3 blog prompt- After practicing the exercises for the week:

Reflect on this week’s focus of radiating kindness. What opportunities did you find to think kind thoughts? How did those thoughts influence your actions? What opportunities did you have to act out of kindness? How did it feel? Has anyone noticed you being more kind? What did they say? Did you react out of kindness? How did your reaction differ to how you would have reacted if you weren’t focusing on reacting from a place of kindness? How did it make you feel? How do you feel three weeks into this challenge? Are you noticing any changes? What have you noticed about yourself?
