The holidays are upon us and stress often becomes a big factor in people’s lives. There are articles about how to eat less during the holidays, find the right gift, manage your time, deal with family dinners and a whole plethora of other things we think cause stress in our lives.
Actually, the most effective ways to avoid stress is by changing your thinking and the way you feel about life. The best way I have ever found to do that is by committing random acts of kindness. What a wonderful holiday tradition to begin! When we are sharing love and kindness with others there isn’t any room left for stress in our lives.
To me, angels are the epitome of random acts of kindness. Many people over the years have touched my life is such profound ways, sometimes with something as simple as a smile. Here on the Big Island of Hawaii the aloha spirit is still very much alive. My heart is always touched by a warm smile of aloha. The street I live in is one way in places so people have to pull over to let one another go buy and it is seldom done without a wave and a smile.
Later this week (Saturday) I am going to run a contest about random acts of kindness and I will give away copies of my book on Spiritual Healing so stay tuned.
Here are some fun sites and organizations that are all about random acts of kindness.
- Acts of Kindness
- How to commit random acts of kindness
- The online Random Acts of Kindness Group
- 29 Ways to commit random acts of kindness
And here are a whole lot of posts on our own Beliefnet about random acts of kindness
With love and aloha,
Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.
Make Angels on Your Shoulder part of your daily routine and share it with a friend!
