14 Day Kindness Calendar for the Month of Love

Let’s start February off with this kindness calendar, because there’s no denying that we could all use more love in our lives. After the chaotic year that was 2020, the intentions we’ve set for 2021 are likely more grounded in self-care and appreciating the little things. These types of intentions are rooted in love. 

While February is typically known as the month of love, there are many ways to show it. You may choose to surprise someone with roses or maybe you’d rather spend time making a nice dinner with a loved one.  If you’re looking for a unique way to show love this Valentine’s season, you might want to consider random acts of kindness. Random acts of kindness are small acts that can make a big difference in someone’s day.

Day 9: Pay for someone behind you in line

Day 10: Start a gratitude journal

When you start recognizing the positives, you become more positive. Start a gratitude journal to document all the things you’re grateful for.

Make your neighborhood a cleaner and prettier place to live. Pick up trash for an hour or plant flowers in a community garden. 

Day 12: Give yourself a break

Spreading love and kindness includes practicing self-care. If you’re not at your best, you can’t be there for the people you love. Take a break and practice self-care in a moment you’d normally fill with other to-dos. 

Day 13: Give a friend your favorite book

Raise your hand if you have a bookshelf of books you probably won’t read again. Rather than letting them gather dust, give them to a friend with a personalized printable bookmark. 

Day 14: Leave a love note in a stranger’s mailbox

Some are saddened by Valentine’s Day and could be feeling especially alone. Be sure to spread the love by leaving love notes in stranger’s mailboxes. 

What other random acts of kindness would you add to this kindness calendar? Remember, you can do these things all year round and not just in the days leading up to Valentine’s Day.  Spreading kindness offers a mood boost for both the giver and the receiver, so do as much as you can to be kind to others this year.
