Kindness Campaign Underway  

 

Prairie North Health Region is encouraging you to make a conscious effort to do more random acts of kindness within your home and throughout your community.  

 

Prairie North Health Region is supporting the work of other organizations within the region to support the initiative aimed at encouraging youth, adults, and business people to make more efforts of kindness each day.    

 

“The idea behind ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ is to do little things for others that make a big difference,” says Bonita Brick, PNHR Health Promotion Coordinator. “The benefits that come from kindness are numerous, including increasing a persons sense of self-worth, decreasing feelings of isolation, increasing social connectedness.  Most people already do acts of kindness throughout their day, we are hoping that people will make an effort to do more, and to make it part of their daily activities.”  

 

When it comes to acts of kindness, the possibilities are endless. A few examples include:  

 

Being a courteous driver.  

Making a complete meal for the parents of the new baby  

When the snow starts to fall, brushing of a car next to yours  

Baking cookies and take then to the police, emergency room, etc.  

Doing a chore that is normally your spouses  

Calling an old friend  

Planting a tree  

Smiling at people you walk past  

Volunteering  

Leaving a kind note in your child’s or spouse’s lunch or on a co-workers desk  

 

According to the 2008 Health Status Report compiled by Prairie North Health Region only 66.3%-78.7% of the population within Prairie North Health Region feel a somewhat strong to strong sense of community belonging.   By increasing people’s awareness of how they can make their community kinder by their actions, it is hoped that more people will feel a stronger sense of community belonging.  

 

For more information about Random Acts of Kindness, contact Bonita Brick or Kim Tradewell, PNHR Population Health Promotion Coordinators, at (306) 820-6217 or visit www.pnrha.ca.
