Time to Celebrate Others During Be Kind to Humankind Week

AFM1The last week in August is dedicated to Be Kind to Humankind Week. It’s celebrated on a global basis from August 25th to August 31st every year.

This is the time to reflect on what you can do to make the world a better place for everyone just by your daily actions.AFM2

A specific theme has been given to each day during Be Kind to Humankind Week that provides a way to focus on a certain type of behavior that involves kindness. These theme days are:

  • Sacrifice our wants for other’s needs Sunday
  • Motorist consideration Monday
  • Touch-a-heart Tuesday
  • Willing-to-lend-a-hand-Wednesday
  • Thoughtful Thursday
  • Forgive your foe Friday
  • Speak kind words SaturdayAFM3

Not only will you make others feel good, but you will also feel more positive and good about what you are doing and how you treat others.

Another nice gesture during this week is to send flowers to someone that may need that much more kindness in their lives.
