14 Day Love and Kindness Countdown Calendar
While January is all about reflecting and making goals for the new year, February is the month of love.
Whether you are excited about the DIY Valentine’s Day gift you have planned or you’d rather skip the holiday altogether, we encourage you to make this a month of showing love.
Showing love means something different to each person. You may show your love by gifting the perfect present while others show love by spending quality time with someone. Take the time this month to learn your love language and use it to care for loved ones, your community, and yourself.
To help inspire you, Redbubble created a love and kindness calendar. Each day leading up to Valentine’s Day, try one of their suggested acts of kindness. You can choose to follow the calendar in order or skip around, checking off each heart as you complete an act of kindness. Don’t like one of the suggestions? Replace it with your own act of kindness idea.
Here’s a preview of each day’s challenge:
Day 1 – Send a letter of encouragement
Day 2 – Bake a treat for your neighbor
Day 3 – Leave a positive review at a local spot
Day 4 – Give someone a compliment
Day 5 – Creat a pick-me-up kit
Day 6 – Bring flowers to an essential worker
Day 7 – Send someone a candid photo
When completing these, use your creativity to make them unique to your love language. You can also download these printables to help you personalize each act:
- Mandala coloring pages to put in the letter of encouragement. After all, coloring has proven to reduce anxiety and make people feel calmer.
- Add a printable treat tag to your baked goods.
- Create a pick me up kit with printable notes to leave on a friend’s doorstep.
- Include a printable note in a loved one’s lunch.
When giving away books, include a printable bookmark with a note.
