Benefits of Being Kind

Benefits of Being Kind

Research shows that wishing others well reduces stress, which in turn positively impacts the body’s inflammatory, endocrine, and nervous systems. It takes just a little practice every day, though, to activate these beneficial effects.

Scientific research also confirms what we know on an anecdotal level: kindness reduces pain and anger and boosts well-being. These effects improve physical and emotional outlook.

Practice kindness

This week, consider this list as steps to take to practice kindness and generosity. Put a name and a specific action you’ll do this week.

  • To your enemy, forgiveness.

  • To an opponent, tolerance.

  • To a friend, your heart.

  • To a customer, service.

  • To all, charity.

  • To every child, a good example

  • To yourself, respect.

An act of altruism spreads by 3 degrees; from one person to another and to another. Altruism spreads to the health of the community.

One small act of kindness can go a long way!

“Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.” — Simone Weil
