Acts of kindness (to say your piece)
Although everyone has a right to an opinion, it can be so easy to lose your sense of what you stand for amongst busy work and family schedules. But taking time to express your thoughts on something that you’re passionate about can have an impact on all aspects of your life and wellbeing.
Simply verbalising something that has been bothering you can instantly relieve the stress and pressure that has been surrounding it, freeing up your mind to deal with other issues and avoiding time spent worrying with “I wish I had said...” sentiments. What’s more, when other people see you standing up for what you believe in, it can empower them to share.
Whether it’s a situation at work you’re not happy about, a cause you want to ght for or even just a feeling that you’d like to share with the group, saying it out loud is a little act of kindness to yourself that can improve your self-esteem and interaction with others.
