2021 A New Year: let’s continue to be kind to each other

As we start a new year, you might be forgiven to think it is hard to celebrate, however returning to a theme from 2020, we can be kind to one another and to ourselves.  If we can do this, we can spread a little happiness. Even small gestures can make someone feel valued and cared for. Here are some ideas that you might be able to use:

Buy some flowers; for anyone

Offer to do shopping

Do some baking and share the results

Offer to make coffee

Offer to take the dog for a walk

Make time to stop and have a chat

If appropriate, suggest a socially distanced walk, or bike ride, to someone who is on their own

Send a card

Make a phone call

Kindness is always important, especially during the current Covid pandemic and at a time when we see cases rising rapidly. With the roll out of the vaccine and the hope of an end to the current restrictions, I hope we continue to remember to spread a little kindness well into the future.

Jonathan’s Voice will be here throughout 2021 and beyond, speaking out about mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and elsewhere.
