You could be in for a chance of winning this luxury spa set donated kindly by Mind Allies.
Filled with products to pamper you throughout the winter – organic moisturisers and bath scrubs – this is a must have!
You must be over 16 and living in the UK to enter this competition. You must like one of our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) and share our competition post. You must send a photograph of your act of kindness to our social media pages or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Kindness is not just good for others who experience our kind gestures and have gratitude for them. It is also rewarding for the soul and helps to nourish the individual to thinking in more constructive, optimistic, open-minded ways. Negative events have a more profound impression on human brains than positive events. It is important for the positive events, thoughts and occurrences to be more frequent than the negative to not just cancel them out but surpass them.
In a time where people are becoming more isolated and distanced from one another, what better opportunity to spread some joy?
Deadline for entry December 15th
Winner announced December 23rd
What is the 'Act of Kindness' competition?
Since we can’t come together to provide kind words, advice and support, Lighter-Minds is inviting you to share the love virtually. An act of kindness before COVID-19 could be making someone a cup of tea, baking them cakes, sending them flowers, or cleaning their car. Now we have to be more creative, but there’s still loads of ways we can be kind from a distance.
Do one act of kindness for someone else (a loved one, coworker, neighbour or stranger). For example, one of Lighter-Minds co-founders, C.J. Appleby, has created motivational quotes to reinforce gratitude and encourage positive thinking. She shares these over email with her coworkers, family and friends.
Take a picture or video of your random act of kindness and share it on social media with the hashtag #actofkindness tagging our page @lightermindsuk.Only entries who have liked the Lighter-Minds UK Facebook or Twitter account will be counted. Competition ends December 15th. Winner announced December 23rd.
