A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.

Kindness is contagious and doesn’t cost a thing.

Kindness is an investment. Good karma is the return.

Money makes you rich. Kindness makes you great.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Kindness is loving people more than they deserve.

Choose kindness…It matters.

Do good. Be great. Believe there is good in the world.

Be kind to others. Your random act of kindness might become someone’s best lifetime memory.

Sometimes, a single random act of kindness can become the spark that ignites a revolution.

Be nice to people. Sometimes, a smile is all it takes to start a chain of kindness.

Be kind to others without expecting anything in return. Karma is keeping a tab.

Kindness may be blind but it is the most eye-opening feeling one can get. Thanks for being kind.

Be silly. Be honest. Be kind.

Have courage and be kind.

Time spent home = Time well spent

Looking to make the most of your time at home? Check out a few ideas to feed your mind, body and soul.

  1. Learn Calligraphy – Have you always wanted to give it a shot but never got around to it? Sip & Script is posting great tutorials on their Instagram stories including free downloads that you can try from the comfort of your home!
  2. Video Chat- Use Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Zoom or Marco Polo to video chat with your long-distance friends. To add a little more fun, plan a Happy Hour or dinner with everyone to get as close to the real thing as possible! Try a new recipe that you can share with each other and enjoy it over a video chat together. Cheers!
  3. Make a Photo Album- Scroll through your camera roll and pick out your favorite pictures to make a photo book. Websites like Shutterfly, Artifact Uprising, Snapfish & Social Print Studio all have apps that make album making a breeze.
  4. Create a Budget- We know, we know, leave it to the Credit Union to make this recommendation. It may not be the most exciting thing to do but certainly worthwhile. With tools like MyMoney and these great calculators, creating a budget is easier than ever.
  5. Shop Local- If you are doing house projects or celebrating birthday’s from afar, consider shopping local or buying items ahead of time, if you have the means to support small businesses that may be struggling right now. Not only will it feel good for you, but for the recipient if it is sent as a gift. Bonus- most places are able to offer e-gift cards to be directly emailed to others!
  6. Bucket List- Create a post-quarantine bucket list for all of the things you want to do once we are able to be less socially distant. Road trip? Cooking Class? Dance Lessons? Whatever it might be, write it down as something to look forward to and do some research in the meanwhile. Refer to the above recommendation and pre-buy a gift card for one of these items so you can support local business and hold yourself accountable to checking off your bucket list item soon!
