Small Random Acts of Kindness That Will Makes A Big Difference

url

We cannot just rely on others to make the world a better place – each one of us has to do our part. If you want to see the world transformed for the better, it should start with you. Kindness is contagious and you never know how an act of compassion can make a difference in someone’s day.

Here are some small and quite easy random acts of kindness you can start doing, happy helping!

Say “Hello or Good morning”

Greeting someone, even if you don’t know them, is a common courtesy. It means you are acknowledging their presence; you are saying that they are a person, too, and that they are important enough for you to say hello to.

Ask If You Can Help

Many people find it quite difficult to ask someone for help. They feel that they are inconveniencing the other person or “unloading” on them. The next time you see someone who looks down or frustrated, offer to help them. Simply ask how you could help make a situation better.

Treat a friend out to a dinner

No matter how you do it, spending time with a friend is an opportunity to get closer and catch up on each other’s lives.

Smile and be kind to the waitstaff

They’ve been on their feet all day, tending to the needs of the customers–a little thank you is a nice way to show you appreciate their service.

Hold the door open for someone

You don’t need to be a guy to do this. Opening a door for someone is a way to show common courtesy and also proof that you’ve been brought up well.

Smile a lot

A smile is contagious and has special powers. You can calm fear, insecurity, hurt and anxiety not only in yourself, but in those that are experiencing those feelings. The next time someone is feeling sad, scared, nervous, whatever it may be, smile with them and see how this makes them feel!

Sunscreen 101

sun-screen

It’s summer once again! We all know that basking under the sun is good for our skin, but staying too long can also be damaging specially when you step out without protection. It is always advisable to put sunscreen at least 30 minutes before you go outside. Sunscreens are products combining several ingredients that help prevent the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation from reaching the skin. Two types of ultraviolet radiation, UVA and UVB, damage the skin, age it prematurely, and increase your risk of skin cancer.

What does that magic SPF number stand for?

The SPF shows the length of time you’ll be protected from burning, depending on your skin type.
Most sunscreens with an SPF of 15 or higher do an excellent job of protecting against UVB. Sun Protection Factor — is a measure of a sunscreen’s ability to prevent UVB from damaging the skin. Here’s how it works: If it takes 20 minutes for your unprotected skin to start turning red, using an SPF 15 sunscreen theoretically prevents reddening 15 times longer — about five hours.

What’s the difference between SPF 30 & SPF 50?
If your skin naturally burns within 10 minutes, by using a product with SPF of 30, you multiply your protection by 30, prolonging your protection against the sun to 300 minutes (10 minutes x SPF30). SPF 50 is perfect as it protects your skin for about eight hours, and if you had a very early day, re-application is easy.

Who should use sunscreen?

Anyone over the age of six months should use a sunscreen daily. Even those who work inside are exposed to ultraviolet radiation for brief periods throughout the day, especially if they work near windows, which generally filter out UVB but not UVA rays.
