We are always looking for new ways to help us live kinder, gentler, more compassionate lives, and apparently, so is National Geographic. They have created a wonderful gift-sized book that is one of our favorite things for the new year. It is simply titled, Daily Kindness, and you’re going to love it!

National Geographic's DAILY KINDNESS

National Geographic

Beginning on January 1, start each day with an inspiring quote and gorgeous photograph that is sure to tickle your “little grey cells,” as Hercule Poirot would say. For example, one of our favorites is for February 22 and comes from St. Thérèse de Lisieux. It states, “Let us love, since that is all our hearts were made for.” Isn’t that great? This little volume is jam packed with gems like this.

This book is stunning, has a satin ribbon to help you keep your place, and is perfectly sized to fit on your night stand or coffee table, always within arm’s reach when you need a bit of motivation and encouragement. Another favorite quote herein is for June 15 and comes from author J.K. Rowling. She writes, “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” So in 2018, let’s truly make our choices count and make sure they are for the betterment of all mankind!

But we think the quote for August 31 sums up this volume quite nicely. Here, Albert Schweitzer says, “Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.” Given the current mindset of the nation right now, when kindness seems more like an afterthought rather than a given, the reminders in this book will prod all of us to awaken every day, determined to be a little better than we were the day before.

Therefore, we hope this little book filled with big ideas regarding love, humility, gratitude, authenticity, and more, will help you live your best life in 2018. We already know it will inspire you. That’s why we think it is sure to become one of your favorite things too. Happy reading, and remember to always live well!
