Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day! This is definitely a holiday we can get behind. Being friendly and kind to one another is something we should be doing all the time, but it's nice to have a little reminder from time to time to refresh our perspectives. Always choose kindness. You never know what someone is going through or what battles they're fighting, and even the smallest act of kindness can mean the world to someone. Here are some ideas of things you can do to brighten someone’s day (including yours).

Send a friendly text.💬

Pick three friends or family members and send them a text letting them know how much you love and appreciate them. It’s a small gesture, but it so nice to remind the people we love how much they mean to us. And it feels good to put a smile on their face. (Or even better, give them a call!)

Pay it forward (or backward).💸

If you’re getting your daily caffeine fix at a coffee shop, treat the person in line behind you and buy their coffee.

Write it out.✍️


Keeping a gratitude journal is a great way to practice kindness for yourself. In the morning (or evening, or whenever works with your schedule), write down a list of what you’re grateful for in that moment. This is a great practice to enhance your overall happiness and well-being. Spritz your favorite perfume while you’re journaling to inspire you and help you set your intention.

Support a worthy cause.💕

She’s the First is a non-profit that provides scholarships for women in developing countries to become the first in their families to graduate and receive an education. Every time you purchase a DefineMe fragrance, $1 goes to She’s The First — and together we’re making a dent in the 31 million girls worldwide who currently receive no education. We’re so happy to be partnering with such an amazing organization that’s supporting and empowering girls around the world.
