Mindful Act of Kindness – Return Your Shopping Cart

Mindful Act of Kindness - Return Your Shopping Cart

Be kind to the store staff and bring your shopping cart back. They’ll be extra nice to you next time. You also get a kindness bonus because you’ll help keep someone else’s car from getting scratched or dinged. Come on. If you’ve ever had it happen to you, you know you wished someone had just put their cart back properly. Extra bonus? Your round trip will give you about 225 steps. Over a year that’s an extra 13 miles! Celebrate with an ice cream, you earned it!

60-90 seconds. That’s how long it takes to take your shopping cart back to the store front. Unless you’re a surgeon or Kiefer Sutherland rushing to save the world, you’ve got the time. And if your day is that messed up that 90 seconds is really going to be a catastrophe? You’ve got bigger problems.
