This is a great reminder to myself of how important it is to be kind to others on a daily basis. I truly believe in karma; the more positivity you put out into the world the more you get back. I stumbled upon this blog post from dailycupofyoga.com and thought the suggestions were easy to incorporate into daily life. You never know what kind of day someone is having and the simplest gesture can really do magic.

25 Ways to Be Kind.
