PS. - I included my favourite ‘Liquid Calm’ recipe at the end, just in case you’re looking for some different ways to relax and support your emotions. It’s my go to for days when I’m having trouble being kind to myself and/or others.


Be kind to your server. They’re often dealing with things behind the scenes, both personal and work-related, that the customer never knows about. Eye contact, a smile, showing some patience and compassion – all those things can really turn someone’s shift around. 

 

Text someone good morning or goodnight. Kick-start their day and/or make sure it ends on the right note by showing them that you care, and that you’re thinking of them! 

 

Write a positive comment on a website or blog. The internet is full of negative ones, so next time you see a post you really enjoy, let the author know! It might just make their day.

 

Praise a local business online. Reviews and referrals can be huge, especially for smaller, local businesses. Show your favourite shop, restaurant or salon some love and tell others why you’re obsessed with them. It’ll warm their heart and may even help their business!


Drink more water. Taking care of your mind and body should be your top priority. When you feel good, it’s way easier to help others and be kind!
