In celebration of World Kindness Day this Monday 13 November, we’re looking to some of our favourite stars for advice on how to be kind to ourselves and to others.
From Emma Bunton and Mel B, to Holly Willoughby and Sarah, Duchess of York, these famous faces have shared their top tips in Rosie Nixon’s book, Be Kind, illustrated by Jakki Jones.
Rosie writes: “The great thing about kindness is that it costs nothing; it isn’t about grand gestures and it doesn’t care who you are, where you are from. Kindness is within us all, although being kind to ourselves is often the hardest thing to do.
“The smallest acts of kindness can be the most rewarding: a smile, a supportive message, a phone call, making time to listen. You have a choice about how you will act in any given situation and, I promise you, choosing the kind option will always be rewarding.
“See if you can make kindness towards yourself a daily practice – talk to yourself in the way you would speak to a friend. Tell yourself that you deserve it.”
