Care Solace Article - Kindness is contagious. Everyday, choose to be kind.

Let’s make kindness the norm this week! As we all work to create a kinder world, we can start with ourselves and our community. We invite you to celebrate Valentine’s Day (February 14th) and Random Acts of Kindness Day (February 17th) by spreading kindness.

There is no limit on the amount of goodness we can put into the world. Every ounce of kindness matters and inspires kindness in others. Ready to participate in the Kindness Challenge? Here are ideas to get started:

  1. Join the #MakeKindnessTheNorm challenge and share your acts of kindness on social media.
  2. Practice kindness and self-compassion with these guided practices and exercises: Self Compassion Practices
  3. Some of us are already taking steps to find professional help with our well-being and perhaps you or a loved one should too. If you or a family member would like help finding a mental health care provider, use Care Solace, a complimentary and confidential coordination service provided by Wayne-Westland Community School District:

Call 888-515-0595. Multilingual support is available 24/7/365.

Spreading kindness improves our well-being and fosters a caring community. What will you do to spread kindness this week?
