Ask for Kindness
Challenge: Ask for help when you are in need
Kindness isn’t a one-way street. Sometimes you just have to ask. Most people truly want to help, let them! Acts of kindness don’t have to be random. Acts of kindness don’t have to be ordinary, in many cases, acts of kindness are, as you’re learning, can be a source of strength and inspiration from others.
If you could use a little extra kindness in your life, ask for it. It may be something as simple as borrowing a friend’s gym shoes or as self-caring ask for advice. Asking for help gives the other the person the opportunity to be kind to someone else, and that will, in turn, make them feel more appreciated.
Create your own Kindness
Challenge: Share what works for you when you are stressed or under pressure.
You and your peers are vitally important to each other because you are likely to be experiencing similar stresses. Consequently, you are able to validate each others’ feelings, and practice empathy; and perhaps offer some good advice.
