Kindness is CONTAGIOUS!

What goes around comes around – and with kindness it really does.

Kindness can be as simple as a smile, a thank-you or a word of encouragement. It’s a way of connecting, even if only for a brief moment, with those we pass in our daily lives. It doesn’t have to cost anything or take much time – what’s important is that it’s an act of genuine care and thoughtfulness for another person.

We all have an innate compassion but sometimes it takes bit of time for us to tune into it.

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible“- Dalai Lama

Research shows that being kind to others increases our own levels of happiness as well as theirs. Recent research into brain functioning has confirmed that we are hard-wired for love and compassion. So, it’s not all chasing about individual success – our communities and society flourish when people look out for each other.

Being kind to others not only strengthens our connection with them but also provides a source of support. We benefit more from giving support than those receiving it. It is like creating a support system for self when in distress. If you have been kind to people around you, you had knowingly or unknowingly inspired others to be the same. Imagine your contribution in building a society, an entire community where people are kind to each other and support each other.

Doing kind things for strangers helps build co-operation, trust and a sense of safety in our communities. It also helps us to see others more positively and empathize with them. These are the foundations of a thriving local community and a flourishing society Рone which builds well-being all round.
