Feel Good Friday - 21 Day Kindness Challenge

Happy New Year!

Many of us use the beginning of the year to set goals, resolutions and intentions for the upcoming year. On this Feel Good Friday, as you consider your options, I wanted you to know about KindSpring's series of 21-Day Challenges.

First, a little about KindSpring from their website, "KindSpring is a place to practice small acts of kindness. For over a decade the KindSpring user community has focused on inner transformation, while collectively changing the world with generosity, gratitude, and trust. The site is 100% volunteer-run and totally non-commercial. It is a shared labor of love."

The 21-day challenges focus on kindness, mindfulness and gratitude. To get started, "you can join an existing challenge, or you can host your own challenge and invite your friends, organization or school to be a part of it. Each person gets a daily email with a suggestion for a small act for the day. You can share your reflections online with others and where possible, meet in-person with your group."

You can go here to join an upcoming challenge. For those of you who want some scientific support on how a challenge like this can be beneficial, there are tons of articles and videos at this link.

To stay in the loop all year long, follow KindSpring on Twitter @Kind_Spring and like their Facebook page. Here's to a new year filled with kindness, mindfulness and gratitude!
