Classes are about to start, and while you are thinking about your school shopping you still need to get done, maybe you should also start thinking about how to spread kindness. See, being kind not only makes other people feel good, but it makes you feel good too.

1. Text your friend out of the blue to say you love them.

Guaranteed way to make your pal smile.

2. Leave encouraging sticky notes on cars in parking lots.

Because who doesn't love surprises?

3. Write a thank you note.

When someone does something nice for you, write them a thank you note! People rarely do this anymore, so it's special when someone receives one.

4. Bake a dessert and give it to a stressed friend.

If you have a way to make a cake or cookies, baking something for a friend who is stressed out is a great way to show your support.

5. Bring donuts to your 8 a.m.

Yeah, you'll have to wake up extra early and spend a little bit of money, but think of all the friends you could make and the days you could brighten.

6. Leave goody bags on the door knobs on your dorm floor.

Buy a couple bags of candy and leave a sweet treat! Bonus if you put an encouraging quote with it.

7. Leave a bag of quarters on a vending machine.

Super easy and fairly cheap, this will surely brighten a stranger's day!

8. Pay for the person behind you at a coffee shop.

This might be a little more expensive, but it is bound to make the person behind you super happy!

9. Hand out compliment cards.

These are super simple to make and a lot of fun to hand out! And, you can ask the person who you give them it to give it to someone else, so it just continues to be passed along.

10. Make an effort to not be on your phone with friends, family, or really anyone you are with.

Phones can be super distracting, so it's best to focus all your energy on the people you are with!

I hope this list was helpful and that you will use it to spread kindness! The world needs more of it.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

3417

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
