Remember To Be Kind This Month

Have you been kind to a stranger today?

February is national Random Acts of Kindness month in the UK, but wherever you are, you can make someone else’s day better by doing something small and unasked-for. And the best part for most people is that being kind to others can make you happier — so not only are you bringing a smile to a stranger’s face, you’re giving a gift to yourself.

The folks at Eden Shopping Center are enjoying that special brand of happiness this month. Shoppers are being randomly treated to free parking, a complementary cup of coffee, discounts, flowers and chocolates. A tap on the shoulder at Eden probably means a happy surprise. Pictured are two shoppers thrilled with their surprise gifts.

The shopping center commissioned a survey recently to see what would make locals happier. The biggest thing respondents wanted was a letter or call from a friend or loved one. But random kindnesses featured as well – help carrying out their bags was a popular choice. Just remember, when you’re planning your own random acts of kindness, there can be such thing as too much of a good thing. Giving away cash makes shoppers nervous more often or not, and you don’t want to have to convince people you’re not scamming them before you can brighten their day.
