Action for Happiness hopes to spread selfless goodwill this month, with its ‘Altruistic August’ action calendar.
The movement publishes monthly calendars, offering daily affirmations on the theme of the respective month. ‘Altruistic August’ follows ‘Jump Back July’, ‘Joyful June’, ‘Meaningful May’, ‘Active April’, ‘Mindful March’, ‘Friendly February’ and ‘Happy January.’
Suggestions for this month include the following:
- Decide to be kind to others (and yourself) every day.
- Ask someone how they are and really listen to the reply.
- Show support for a cause that doesn’t affect you directly.
- When you buy one and get one free, give the extra item away.
- Sign up to be an organ donor or give blood.
