Help make kindness the norm

Help make kindness the norm

Did you know that the week of February 17 is Random Act of Kindness Week? Members of the Well Life Squad, an internal committee focused on employee health and wellness, have encouraged employees in the Campbell County Health system to participate with gift baskets!

Starting February 3, the Squad sent out 12 baskets to different departments with information on how they could continue to spread kindness to other departments in the organization, and which department they were to send the basket to next. Ideas for the baskets included:

  • Write positive sticky notes / letters for the departments employees
  • Send positive stickers
  • Bring water bottles with flavor packets (like True Lemon)
  • Give fresh fruit and veggies, or nuts, spice mixes
  • Provide healthy snacks or energy bars
  • Give dark chocolates or hot cocoa packets with fun sayings on them
  • Pay for coffee
  • Gift pedometers to encourage movement, stress balls, toothbrushes, puzzles or brain games like Sudoku, etc.
  • Find fun items from The Dollar Store
  • Gift pampering items like bath bombs, face masks, lotion, lip balms, etc.

Sharing random acts of kindness can benefit you in the following ways:

  • Fuels personal energy and self-esteem
  • Makes you happier
  • Good for your heart
  • Helps you live longer
  • Decreases the harmful chemicals in your body

The baskets will likely be distributed throughout the system in Campbell County, Wyoming through the month of March.
