Dedicate some time to people experiencing loneliness
With half a million older people experiencing loneliness and going at least five or six days weekly without seeing or speaking to anyone, why not dedicate some time visiting a senior citizen to listen and learn of their past and lifetime of knowledge?
Help Save Our Planet
Our planet consumes approximately 17.7 Terawatts of power (that's 1 Terawatt powering 10 billion, 100-watt bulbs simultaneously.) Be kind to our only planet earth by being conscious about the amount of energy you are consuming.
Ditch the Disposable Water Bottle for a Sustainable One
Yes, water is great for your health, however, did you know that disposable water bottles contain chemicals associated with dizziness and asthma, with some studies linking to an increased risk of breast cancer?
So, we highly recommend you stay sustainably hydrated by using a reusable bottle.
Send an Encouraging Email
Encouraging others brings about a sense of fulfilment and what's better is sending encouragement over email! Send an encouraging and uplifting email to boost your recipients' spirits throughout their workday. That's 'great vibes' straight to their inbox.
Write Inspiring Messages on Post-its
Using bright coloured post-its, writing an encouraging personalised message and sticking them on your co-workers computer, is a great and thoughtful way for you to compliment them on the things you like about them.
If you're that great also (we believe you are), you may receive one too!
Give Someone a Helping Hand
Whether it be at your local shelter or whilst you're passing by, giving someone a helping hand with no expectations is one of the most fulfilling feelings ever.
Support Your Local Business
Can you think of the last time you supported your local business? Eating locally is a kind way of impacting local businesses by celebrating the uniqueness of your community, making the community a destination, helping the environment, investing in entrepreneurship and keeping money within the local community.
Further, paying it forward will never ever go out of style. Whether the food was great at your local restaurant, or didn't quite tickle the taste buds, you owe it to your waiter/ess by leaving a generous tip. Go on, support a local business today!
