100 Ways to be kind to yourself and others (21 Day Kindness Streak invite)


Won’t you join me in keeping kindness alive?

I’m always looking for ways to extend kindness in simple, but meaningful ways.

Thank you cards are my favorite. Compliments. Small surprises.

I created the Kindness Streak to encourage you and me to offer extra kindness into this precious world.

Below are 100 ideas, but for each idea I shared there are 100 more. Use some of mine, make up your own or do a little of both.

For 21 days let’s flood the world with more love.

Download your free 21 Kindness Streak PDF by signing up here.


Simply download your PDF, post it somewhere visible or pop in with your planner pages. Each day that you offer extra kindness, color in (or decorate) the heart and watch your heart and those around you widen and lengthen in size and love.

This isn’t a rigid 21 day invite, but a container for kindness. Miss a day? No worries, begin again. 😉

Ideas can certainly help inspire our hearts to lean into kindness.
