Within our daily lives each and every person has the ability to do something unique. One small act can change the world & it only takes one minute. 

The Minute Project was founded upon the basis that one minute really can change so much. Take into account the last time someone complimented you and how it made you feel & how it only took a few seconds for them to show this kindness to you. Next, think about a time when you were upset and a friend reached out to see how you were doing because they care and that they are willing to take a short time to talk and communicate through the problems you feel. Lastly, visualize a moment you were walking, did an exercise, or just smiled. The most simple action can positively impact you as a person and a community member, so do good today. After all, it only takes one minute.

Today, try one of these things, or maybe a few. Listed below are 60 things that only take 60 seconds. Trust us, you will make a positive difference in your own life or someone else's.
