Today, your mission is simple: be kinder than necessary.
When you ask someone how they are doing, pause and listen to the response. When you pass a stranger on the street, smile bigger. When you order lunch, make eye contact with the person taking your order and show real gratitude for their service. When you are answering your kid’s 100th question of the day, give a thoughtful response. When you are talking with or texting a friend, pay her a compliment.
Be kind without cause. Be kind without expectation. Be kinder than necessary.
