Call someone to talk to them rather than texting.

We are so used to communicating through text messages... yes, there are several benefits in doing so. It gives the recipient the time to revert, it gives you the comfort that you are not disturbing the recipient, it is more actionable as the recipient can forward, open a link, respond to you, and it also gives the recipient the option to ignore.However, text messages lack the warmth and excitement of the spoken word and deprive the opportunity to have a conversation.

Enjoy nature's bounty, share food with the hungry all of this week!

Harvest festivals are about thanking nature for the bounty it offers in the form of crops. It's about welcoming the change of season, enjoying the sunshine with colourful rangoli, kolams, kites and costumes, with song and dance to rhythmic beats. It's all about celebrating with the community.So, whether you are celebrating Pongal, Bihu, Lohri, Makara Sankranti, Poush Sankranti, Uttarayan or a harvest festival by another name...do share nature's bounty with people around you! Share food with the hungry all of this week.

Post something positive on social media!

Post something positive on social media to help people see hope in times of despair, to feel compassion and take constructive action.Share a quote from your favourite poet or author, a reflection about your personal experience, a fact about progress or breakthrough in facing a universal challenge, an anecdote about generosity, a favourite picture that makes you feel positive.If you are someone who prefers not using social media, do share by email.

Be a Santa! Take toys for children at a hospital or an orphanage

Who doesn't love a Santa! You can be one and spread cheer on the eve of Christmas! Take toys for children at a hospital or an orphanage.If you have a Santa costume, wear it or just put your creative skills to use and have fun with your look! Wear a cap made from paper, make a shiny white beard, let kids play with your belly (stuffed or real!)! And, don't forget your bag with toys as presents!

Forgive someone you hold a grude against! If that's hard, organise a toy/books drive! Better still, do both!

As Christmas is around the corner & the year is drawing to a close, and you are making plans for celebrations and holidays, you could take out sometime do one or both of these to spread some joy: 1. Forgive someone that you've been holding a grudge against. Send them flowers or a card. See how much lighter you both feel!2. Organise a toys or books drive in your office/ apartment for a nearby hospital/ orphanage.

Gift a set of note-books for your security guard's children.

Some of our children do not think twice before discarding partially used note-books, and there are several children who simply wish for someone to give them notebooks to write what they learn at school or from a "didi" or "bhaiya" at a centre.  This Tuesday, give a set of note-books to your security guard for his or her children.
