Acts of Kindness When you're Sheltered In?

Posted by 0616 @0616, Aug 29, 2020

I just read your article on relieving stress. It has so many good suggestions but one of the remedies puzzles me. Yes, kindness to others always makes us feel better but as an octogenarian and one who is sheltered in, what acts of kindness can I do for others? Thank you for your many articles on health and well being; they have been inspiring and helpful to me.

There are 2 ways to approach watercolors and doodling. You can do random watercolors, let it dry, and add doodle lines as you choose. Or you can plan your picture, sketch it lightly, add watercolors, and finish with black doodle lines. I've tried both and enjoyed both.

The mention above of audiobooks made me smile. Several years ago a friend told me to read some Alexander McCall Smith books. He has written many, maybe dozens of wonderful stories. Many have been translated into over 20 languages. A great many on audiobook I borrowed from our local library. The wonderful thing about audiobooks is the readers consistently pronounce the characters names correctly. :o) It's much easier to follow the story when you can easily keep track of the characters. ;o) A series I especially enjoy is the Ladies Detective Agency. Takes place in Africa and has many hard to pronounce names, streets, etc. so once again, audiobooks is my answer.

Thank you for the suggestion. I was just able to explore your recommendations and found many titles that I think will be great. Audible now has my order and I look forward to some serious escapism into the world of reading. Thank you for the idea of authors.
