8 Simple Ways to Show Kindness to Your Loved Ones


After the madness of digital world with ultra-advanced technologies when you don’t you have time for your loved ones, it’s easy to take a step back from considering ways to show kindness. That’s why, here I am taking a moment or two to share random acts of kindness for people you love the most, who have been the part of your beautiful lives somehow and somewhere.

Some simple acts of kindness can make a world of big difference to your friends and family, making them feel appreciated and uplifting their mood. Kindness, in addition, even by words can boost anyone’s vibrational frequency leaving an evergreen impression. It helps maintaining more generous and positive attitude that can attract more of the same from the Universe.

Do good, feel good 

Practicing kindness also has many health benefits like increasing life expectancy, relieving stress and anxiety, and lowering pain levels. When you show kindness, you are healing others and yourself at the same time. Won’t you believe it?

“Do things for people not because of who they are or what they do in return, but because of who you are.”

Harold S. Kushner

You might be wandering that you don’t have time to show something like this every day, but you do not need to be worried. Here’s good news you can show kindness to your loved ones with a few easy yet worth impressive ways.

1. Write A Letter 

Do you grab the chance to thank everyone for what they’ve contributed to your lives? Unfortunately, not quite often!

Writing a letter is the best way to show kindness or love, even if it’s for something associated to years earlier. Be expressive and let them know you are thinking of them for so long.  Write a letter to your grandmother, who no more lives with you at your home but you still think of her. Thank her for all she did for you when you were quite young. Whether you hang it on to the message or deliver it to someone close to her, it will still feel valuable. 

2. Offer a helping hand

Asking for someone’s help is one of the most effortful things to do. Often this is avoided seeing it as a weakness, hesitating, or using it as a last resort. You can offer a helping hand to your loved ones, even by small acts.

Here are some easy ways you can show kindness by helping others:

  • Paying for your friend’s order who is in line behind you
  • Discuss your loved one’s problems and try to solve them
  • Helping a friend or sibling with a project
  • Making your friends and partner feel less depressed in their hard times
  • Sending a love text to a friend or family member
  • Holding the door open for your lover
  • Taking time for your parent, old friends, or your fiancé.
  • Doing a project on behalf of them

3. Be there to listen

Are you a good listener? If yes! Then you must know the fact how much listening plays a role in healthy relationships. Listen to value someone, to appreciate their love! Do not listen to respond only. It will not only make other person feel unloved but mark your image of an unkind.

Always being there to listen intently to your friend or family member will alleviate stress, pressure, and anxiety. Remember that being a humble listener needs you to give your full concentration and attention.

4. Stay connected

How long it’s been you’ve connected your old high school friend? Hectic schedules may forget you showing love to them. There are no excuses for not checking in or connecting with friends, especially when you have access now to rapid communication.

A simple check-in text or call, may be just this right now, let your friends know you are thinking of them. When your parents and siblings are out of country, make a phone call and show some kindness.

5. Appreciate their feelings

Sometimes a loved one’s impact on your lives may not be recognized until years later. Is that your strict parent who taught you a grateful lesson about life that didn’t click until your 20s? Or is that your friend from high school you never said “hi” after graduation?  Just catch them and appreciate their feelings, even small act of kindness can leave huge consequences. It is contagious but bears the potential to transform your relationship to a much better place. You know, for many, only belonging is essential, though you focus more on how others accept you and not enough on how you contribute. That’s great!

6. Show love to your partner

Have you just got free time to celebrate love? Grab all the details of a surprise date. Show kindness to your partner. It doesn’t need to be extravagant to enjoy the power of kindness or celebrate the positive aspects of your longtime relationship. It could be as simple as a picnic, walk after a romantic dinner, or a long drive along with your partner’s favorite song playing inside a car.

“Because that’s what kindness is. It’s not doing something for someone else because they can’t, but because you can.”

 Andrew Iskander

7. Compliment others

Complimenting others is one of the simplest ways to show kindness. It helps others feel glowing and releasing a boost of endorphins connected with the reward centers of the brain.

Caught your friends at brunch, saying ‘Hey, you’re looking deadly gorgeous’ or complimenting your father at breakfast table, ‘Dad! I’m proud to be a son/daughter of a handsome man’ can make them feel much loved.

8. Say “Thank You” and “I’m Sorry”

Do not forget to say “Thank You” and “I’m Sorry” every time you get privilege or stuck with something wrong. These two genuine terms carry a lot of meaning. Kindness and apologies express that you are accountable for your actions and respect the other person involved. That’s kindness, signed, packed, and delivered! 

“Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.”

 Albert Schweitzer

Final thoughts

Practicing genuine acts of kindness helps others feel accepted, build relationships, and strengthen bonds during difficult times. Just send a text for no specific reason than to thank them, whether small – reminder to clean your football kit – or a great – being so supportive every day.

So, how are you going to express your love or kindness to loved ones today? Just let them inspire you with further ideas of your own!
