*****Kindness*****

Last Update: March 06, 2014

Being kind is an enjoyable experience. It makes you feel good and useful...and alive!!

The person who receives a kind act experiences a "feel good" response too. It is a nice experience when someone smiles at you, thanks you, compliments you, or helps you in some way. It creates a bonding, and in that moment there is a greater sense of worth about yourself and people in general.

It is a feeling akin to feeling in love, and in a way...you have fallen in love with humanity. When you do something good, your body actually rewards you by releasing endorphins. They create the feel good experience, and also even have the capacity to reduce or block pain signals to the brain.

It has been scientifically proven that regular, small acts of kindness have a positive effect...not only...on your physical and mental well being, but also on your longevity!

Kindness is not only a feel good experience.....it is also beneficial to you health. So what are you waiting for? Let's all be kind to each other....today and everyday.
