Elizabeth Shaw: Thoughtfulness campaign & competition

Published October 21, 2016 by Bizzimummy

I am taking part in a campaign by Elizabeth Shaw (yes the chocolate company!) which is focused on thoughtfulness and consideration.

The campaign coincides with the twice yearly clock change next week (October 30th) when the clocks go back an hour and we gain an extra hour. Unfortunately the clock change and changing seasons means dark nights and less sunlight. Many people feel down and a little depressed when the cold dark nights creep in. I for one know all about this as o suffer from S.A.D which brings with it depression and low mood at this time of year.

The dark nights also indicate that Christmas is not far off. Whilst many families look forward to this, there are many that don’t and find this time of year very sad and lonely.

I therefore want to encourage all my readers to spend the extra hour we get next weekend thinking of others and perhaps think of thoughtful gestures to help that person. For example – , calling an old friend you haven’t spoken to in a while, taking your neighbour’s dog for a walk, giving a stranger spare change if they are short of a few pence at the shop. Sometimes just a small act of kindness goes a long way and especially at this stressful time of year.

Next week I will post my thoughtful gestures.

  • I try to treat everyone as I would like to be treated whether it is spending time chatting to a lonely neighbour, supporting a friend who is having a crisis or just listening to someone who needs to offload a problem.


  • i have to say i try and be as helpful to others as much as i can.if its keeping a door open to an elderly person or giving a homeless young lad a cup of coffee and a sausage roll


  • We’ve been spending a weekend every month at our daughter’s house, where we sleep in the same room as our little granddaughter. Our daughter & SIL get to go out for the evening without a toddler in tow, and get to lie in for a change as we either bring our granddaughter into bed with us, or get up and entertain her. Not sure who is doing who a favour: our daughter & SIL get some adult time and a proper rest, but we get the benefit of extra snuggles with our little granddaughter.


  • I look out for my elderly neighbours & pop round every day to make sure my one neighbour who is on his own, is ok. We have lovely chats, my kids fetch shopping for him & I even get called round to give him his ear drops at times!


  • I sort out mums christmas gift list so she doesn’t have to go out in the cold and struggle as she’s just had a knee replacement operation, plus doing daily chores for her


  • I go shopping for my parents 🙂 and I think just general consideration for others – there are probably loads of things we all do every day that we don’t even think about


  • I have a 90 your old neighbour and a group of us who live up the street take it in turns to call round a couple times a day for a chat with her and to do shopping,errands and make sure she is safe and happy and not lonely


  • I’ll sweep up all the leaves that have fallen in my Dads garden, and generally have a tidy up. It’s a bit cold outside for him, and the garden’s looking a bit autumnal and messy, so good to get it back in tip top condition again!


  • simply making a cup of tea or coffee can be a simply thoughtful gesture for people. looking after the neighbors who are elderly by getting their shopping in is another kind thing too/Just thinking of others especially when thy dont expect it


  • Simply spending time with someone, listening to them and showing them affection; it’s so easy to let that slide and yet it’s one of the most valuable things.


  • I try to do one random act of kindness each day, such as helping someone with shopping, holding open a door, giving way to a car, baby sitting or gardening.


  • I like to send friends little gifts or cards through the post when they least expect it. I seem to have accumulated lots of trolley coins so I’ve taken to giving them away or leaving them in the trolley for the next person to come along
