Being kind to yourself, to strangers, to those you love, to the world - every day, at every opportunity - will make you happier and more connected to everything and everyone than you have ever been. Prompted by the seeming hopelessness of the world around her, Bernadette Russell undertook a pledge to be kind to a stranger every day for a year. The experience left her wanting to inspire others. 'The Little Book of Kindness' is packed with fun ideas, practical tips and interactive exercises that encourage you to 'be kind' in every area of life - online, to strangers, to the environment, in your community, to yourself - and change the world, one act of kindness at a time
