Bernadette Russell started a blog called 366 Days of Kindness in 2011, detailing her attempt to be kind to a stranger every day for one year. The Little Book of Kindness draws on Bernadette’s own experience of embracing daily kindness, beginning with an exploration into what kindness means and its proven benefits (from healthier hearts to slowing the ageing process).

The Little Book of Kindness shows that kindness is a way of connecting with the people we pass in our daily lives and in the world around us. The book provides practical tips and exercises for the reader to ‘be kind’ whether to those you love, online, to strangers, to the environment and even to people you disagree with.

bernadette Russell’s blog 366 Days Of Kindness detailed her attempt to be kind every day to a stranger. The project gained support from the Dalai Lama’s organisation, Action for Happiness. The author also writes a weekly Kindness column in Balance magazine reaching over 200k people.
