World Kindness Day at Work

World Kindness Day may remind us of being that little more kind to our fellow man.

But kindness shouldn’t just be once a year activity for World Kindness Day on Nov 13th but a daily activity.

Being kind is not just good for the soul but being kind to others is a great stress reliever for both the giver and receiver. Kindness gives us the chance to open our heart and be more compassionate, lighter in that moment. This can be a great technique to deal with stress at work, a small gesture when someone is feeling overwhelmed, overworked can seriously help break down any barriers or defences never mind the ego. Which is often heavily prevalent in certain work environments. Too often management forgets their role is to manage people which include supporting, encouraging and empowering. A little bit of compassion and kindness to negative news can make a huge difference to how a staff member reacts to challenging and stressful situations. Compassion can help empower and boost motivation within any workforce, while forceful action or engagement often dis-empowers and dis-engages staff.

So World Kindness Day should be a powerful reminder not to just be a little kinder to others but about bringing kindness to our self. Whether it’s reaching a hand out to someone in need, or being less hard and more caring on a colleague or even taking a bit more care of yourself.

Let World Kindness Day be a soft reminder about what is really important in life and how much a little bit of kindness can make a huge impact in someone who is having the most awful day.

Kindness often gets lost in this largely materialistic world but at the end of the day, we are only human and the smallest second of kindness are the things we all treasure for a lifetime.
