Gil Fronsdal leads a Guided Meditation Pausing. To practice generosity to the people you're with and if you're alone to be generous with yourself.

Ask yourself, what is the kind thing to do here, what is the generous thing to do?

One of the very important things of being kind is not doing much at all. Simply pausing, making space and taking time to appreciate the people you're with. If you're rushing to talk and to fill the space. If you talk busy and try to be the good whatever, you might miss some of the more profound ways that's possible to connect with people that you stop and just kindda like rather try what you're supposed do, dont' do, stop and breathe even if its for a few seconds or few moments stop and breathe and take the person in that you're with take the people in and see if you can just kinda pause and receive them in awareness, register them and be aware of them and appreciate them. One of the great gifts you can give anyone is to appreciate them.

To take the time to learn how to stop and appreciate the person you're with and pause and maybe there's a simple unthreatening way of gazing or looking upon them with admiration, respect, value and kindness.
