year of kindness challenge: week 33

year of kindness button

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Let’s have a marvelous start to the week! 🙂

Here is a terrific article that I came across this week about happiness: http://blog.bufferapp.com/10-scientifically-proven-ways-to-make-yourself-happier. I noticed that much of the advice has to do with being kind, being grateful, and feeling connected to others — all things that I have grown in my life over the course of doing this kindness challenge!

Last week’s kindness challenge was to plant something. I planted flowers in the long-dormant pots on the front porch as a surprise to my lovely Mama. She was so happy!

Since it’s back-to-school time {already! can you believe it??} this week’s kindness challenge is to donate school supplies to local children who need them. Many communities have school supply drives, or you could donate via organizations like the Boys & Girls Club. Better yet, host your own school supply drive and partner with a local school or classroom to make sure the supplies get to those who need them most!

As always, blog about your experiences and include your links in the comments section below, or feel free to send me an email at dallaswoodburn <AT> gmail <DOT> com.

Have a wonderful week!
Dallas
