Read It: 365 Good Deed Ideas

We all want to do good things, right? But sometimes it's hard to figure out what you can do to make the world a better place. Of course there's volunteering or helping out amazing organizations that other awesome people have put in motion. But then there are the little things...

 Leave someone a handwritten note to "have a nice day."

 Buy a nice water bottle, so you'll be less inclined to use plastic bottles.

 Add money to an expired meter.

These are just a few of the ideas in One Good Deed a Day ($15), a journal from Chronicle books that gives you 365 missions like these, one for every day of the year. Plus, there's a little space underneath each one so you can record what happened, or how you felt, or simply the date when you did it.

It's nice to get a little nudge when you want to brighten up your world, and this book does just that! Warm fuzzies all around.
