Acts of Kindness - Give Compliments

Today's AoK comes from one of our polar bear friends near the North pole. Enjoy!


The other day I was out hunting seals and my friend Whitey said "Nice ice bashing foot stomps". I felt a little glow of warmth in my chest. "Awwww, thanks" I said.

Later that day, I seized the opportunity to spread the love and compliment my other friend Soft Paws. "Nice snow tunnel," I said, "you're the best digger." Seeing Soft Paws smile made me feel that warm glow in my chest again.

So your task today is to give out compliments. It's easy and feels great. Here are a few simple examples:

  • Nice hat and scarf. You look great.
  • Yum, smells good. Are you cooking the best seal stew in the world again?
  • You've got the best laugh!

The best part of handing out compliments is that you can hand them out to complete strangers. The other day I was watching videos on and found these awesome guys who rode their bikes around town spreading the love.
