Tiny Acts Of Kindness We Can All Do

In a world where we could be anything, why not be kind

Right now more than ever, we all need one another. We need those little acts of kindness from ourselves, friends, family, strangers to make the world go around a bit smoother. A lot of us are struggling with the consequences of this ongoing pandemic and I feel if we can take a little time out of our day to be kind to ourselves, or brightens someone’s day, why not do it. I always say it doesn’t have to be massive things, it’s the little things that matter at the end of the day. It’s the small, unexpected things that make us smile day today. The often boring everything things. For this list, I want to share with you my favourite tiny acts of kindness we can all do.

Stop Comparing

We got to be kinder to ourselves. The other day while searching through instagram on valentines day, I found myself feeling low with all the beautiful, sunset couple pictures, while I was sitting on my cosy sofa with last night PJ’s, greasy hair –it wasn’t a pretty picture! This is the thing I want to stop doing and extend a hand of kindness to myself. To stop comparing, especially with those sunkissed pictures from the instagram feed.

Send A Card

I love this. To let someone know you are thinking of them. It’s going the extra mile for someone you care about. We can all send text messages (and we should do that!) but sending a card I feel, adds the personal touch.

Be There For Someone

By now, we all know someone who has lost a loved one due to Covid. These are stressful times. We need to be there for someone in their hard times. Often just lending your time to someone in need does the trick. Going to the supermarket for your elderly neighbour, checking on your friends, helping your parents or smiling –the tiny things we can all do.

Send Some Flowers

I love flowers. Currently in the process of deciding which kind are my absolute favourite. Right now local businesses need our help, if you are able order some flowers from those shops and sent those to your loved ones. A token to remind them you are thinking of them. And for a better time when we all can be with one another without all these restrictions.

Use Social Media Responsibly

Let’s face it, we all are consumed by social networking sites. We spend a significant amount of time scrolling, liking, posting on these sites. Therefore, we must all collectively work together to ensure we use those sites responsibly. For example, reporting abusive, nasty content to appreciate content that makes us smile. Leaving a nice comment on sites that brought some positivity in your day. But most importantly, consuming content that are good for our mental health, what I mean by this is –follow those pages that promotes posivity/motivation rather than those unrealistic glossy pictures. Besides, make unfollow/delete your best friend.

I was beyond shocked to learn Sir Tom Moore, 100 year old war veteran who has raised nearly 40 million for our NHS has received online abuse. I mean how do you fathom this nonsense. It is all the more important for all of us to use social media appropriately. The end goal is being kind to ourselves and others.

Send Food Parcels

I find food heals every pain. When I couldn’t go out for a period during lockdown –I very much appreciated all the food parcels I received. It was such a relief to have food bring to you. It’s a good way for you to try out new recipes to send to your loved ones. It’s a way we all can be close to one another without being physically present with our loved ones.


I hope you found some inspiration after reading this. Do let me know your thoughts and your little acts of kindness.

  1. I love this! You’re definitely right about not comparing… most of those couples who took those sunset pictures aren’t happy in their relationship and might just be doing it for the gram. Unfortunately, there is no “truth” filter on social media so you just have to make sure you don’t take things to heart. ❤

    1. You are right Shelly —the amount of happy sunsets pictures I see on the gram I feel I may the only one not that happy. Even though I know it’s not all true.

      Comparing causes a distance between you and your authentic self. That’s why I try to be cautious of what type of content I consume on social media sites.

  2. Using social media responsibility is soooo important. And its something we often forget to do. I watch Tik Tok live videos and sit and report people abusing the user and sending nasty comments. I report fake accounts of influencers and people I know. Its only small, but if it means that it helps clean up the internet then thats fine 🙂

    1. It’s only recently I started doing that. The abusive comments on Twitter, trolls on Instagram, hateful content on YouTube —the list goes on.

      Like you said cleaning up the internet. It’s up to us what we do with the time we spend on social networking sites.

      Thank you for reading Olivia🧡 xx
