You could be forgiven for thinking that kindness is dead. People seem narcissistic, only interested in their own fame and gratification. Why not be radical and practice some random acts of kindness? According to an article in the Huffington Post being kind can make you happier, is good for your brain and can make you live longer.

Being thankful is an important aspect of good mental health. There is way too much negativity in the world. Help foster an attitude of gratitude by keeping a journal and writing down three things each day that you're thankful for. This cute one is from Kikki K but you can use any journal or notebook.
If you forgot that it's Mother's Day today (what rock have you been living under?) here are some printable Mother's Day vouchers from Skip to my Lou.
Mother's day is just around the corner (8th May if you're in Australia). I love this great DIY gift idea from www.diyready.com on their 36 Thoughtful Homemade Mother's Day Ideas page. They simply use a pack of cards, punch them and stick something that you love about your mum on each card. It may involve a little bit of thought and effort but I guarantee she'll love it. You could also use squares of nice craft card if you don't think she would like the deck of cards.
