Hello everyone, This might be a bit different from what you are expecting for today’s post, BUT… Just wanted to share a bit of what has been on my mind lately.

One small act of JOY goes a long way! There are so many ways that you can change someone’s day by just spreading one small act of JOY. And it’s so easy and simple.

I came up with a few simple ideas and have listed them below.

  • Babysit for free
  • Bake a cake for someone for no reason at all
  • Buy someone flowers for someone who is having a bad day.
  • Make someone a nice card and send it in the post (who doesn’t LOVE getting post)
  • Take someone for a coffee/hot chocolate and a nice chat

Small acts of Joy and Kindness matter and they make a big difference to the people around you and in your community!

Just remember BE KIND in everything you do!

Comment below with any ideas that you think you are going to do after reading this post. If you make any delicious treats or wonderful cards, then tweet using the hashtag #lifebylyd so that I can see all of your creations.

Till next time

    Choose the worst player for your team first so they are not always left til the end; do the washing up even if it\’s not yours; give your number to an elderly neighbour so they can call you if they need help, and just be there for all the lonely people you know. It may mean making an effort, but you will spread the joy and also feel joyful yourself. x A lovely, thoughtful post Lydia
