Kindness Prompt Cards
60 prompt cards designed to help you find compassion and empathy.
In theory, we are all interested in being kind. In practice, a lot gets in the way: tiredness, anger, bitterness. But a lack of kindness lies at the heart of so much of what goes wrong at work, in friendships, and in love.
These Kindness Prompt Cards are designed to bring out our better natures. They present us with a series of thoughts that nurture our sympathy, our powers of compassion, and our appetite for forgiveness. They return us to who we always want to be and deep down already are: kind people.
HOW TO USE THE CARDS
- Read randomly through the cards to evoke your better self, always lurking in the wings.
- Keep one close at hand, on a desk or fridge, as a constant reminder to be kind.
- Give one to a friend or loved one to thank them for their kindness (or to gently remind them to be so).
With illustrations by Erin Campbell, the design stresses the virtue of all things gentle and warm. Coloured with hues of peach, lilac, and cornflower blue, they give confidence and prestige to the kinder, softer sides of ourselves.
