Have you ever received a compliment from a stranger or had someone unexpectedly pay for your dinner? How did that make you feel? According to the Mayo Clinic, showing acts of kindness can increase self-esteem, empathy and compassion, reduce anxiety and boost your overall mood. It can also decrease blood pressure and cortisol, a stress hormone, which directly impacts stress levels. 


World Kindness Day is Sunday, November 13, 2022. Let’s practice kindness this day and every day so we can lead happier and healthier lives.


Here are 7 ways to start making kindness the norm in your daily life:


1.     Send an uplifting text to a friend or family member.

2.     Let that person merge into traffic with a wave and a smile.

3.     Include intentional moments of kindness, laughter and delight in your daily routine.

4.     Go slightly outside of your comfort zone at least once a day to make someone smile.

5.     Share a compliment with a co-worker or friend.

6.     Reach out to a family member you haven’t spoken to in awhile.

7.     Treat someone to a cup of coffee (a friend, stranger, or even yourself).


Below are a few quotes from our Brand Ambassadors and what kindness means to them.

“To me, kindness is serving others; whether it be a helping hand to get a job done, remembering a special day or simply listening to their needs. Offering your time and effort to make someone’s life a little easier can go a long way! Kindness is contagious and makes the world a better place!!” David, Assistant Branch Manager

“For me, one of the main goals in life is to provide acts of kindness to others.  Acts of kindness can be very small, such as letting someone know they are doing a good job at work or large, such as volunteering time/assets to people in need.” Dion, Commercial Loan Consultant

“I believe that kindness truly does make the world go ‘round! Even with something simple you can make an impact and help the kindness wheel will keep turning!” Brieann, Assistant Branch Manager

“Being kind is the essence of being a human. It is a virtue we can show and give to one another on a daily basis.” Junel, Electronic Banking Services Supervisor

“Kindness is the ability to selflessly give time, talent, or treasure in any measure to help make an impact in someone’s day. I believe kindness helps build bridges between people and an even small act can make an impact on someone.” Michael, Branch Manager

“Kindness is being helpful and pleasant.  When I am having a bad day, I try to go out of my way to help others.  I think that no matter how bad my day may be, others may have it worse, and sometimes all a person needs is a kind word or a thoughtful act to brighten their day.” Lisa, Mail Operations Supervisor

“Kindness is a very powerful tool that can change the course of someone’s day. You never know what someone is going through. Kindness is always in style.” Desiree, Senior IT Security Analyst

“World Kindness Day. Find an opportunity to make someone smile.  Your act of kindness may turn their day around!” Jenny, Loan Service Department Manager

“Even when I was out for an appointment after work at my doctor, it was raining and I had my umbrella out.  A, very nice as it turned out, lady was just coming out and I offered to walk her to her car and share the umbrella.  She accepted and then looked at my shirt with the CapFed® logo and said, “Ah.  Capitol Federal.  Of course, you would help.”  Our reputation as a company for being kind and professional had proceeded me.  What a wonderful feeling.” Patrick, IT Security Risk Analyst

"Kindness is having genuine intent and understanding that people are often dealing with much more than they ever let on or display." Erinn, Loan Origination Manager
