3. Go out of your way to say "thank you" to someone who probably doesn't hear it as much as they should.

It really won't take much longer to make one extra serve but will mean a lot to them.

6. Leave a book you loved reading in a public place for a stranger to find.

7. Improve your headspace by putting aside 5–10 minutes to meditate before you leave the house.

You'll really only have to get up a few minutes earlier. There are also a bunch of free apps available if you find it hard to get in the ~zone~ on your own.

9. Bring in your neighbour's bins.

Turn garbage day into something good.

11. Make an appointment to give blood.

It will honestly take you five minutes to arrange, and it's one of the greatest things you can do.

When you do good, you feel good. Set yourself up for a great day with the new range of O&G Spiced Oatmeal and O&G Warm & Crunchy Granola.
