Randon Acts of Kindness

In a season that seems to be becoming less and less what it’s meant to be about, I thought we’d reinstate the true meaning of the Festive Season and so the subject of our Lifetonic this month is Randon Acts of Kindness.

And the surprising thing is, science shows the benefits of kindness are actually greater for the giver than the receiver. According to a research by Otake, Shimai and Tanaka-Matsumi there’s a link between kindness and happiness in which someone feels joyful while doing good and happy individuals do good more often. Being nice causes your body to release a variety of natural feel-good chemicals. As a result, exercising kindness and compassion can make you happy, strengthen your immune system, reverse the effects of aging, alleviate discomfort, and even help you live longer.

Another significant advantage of kindness is that it has a ripple effect, and the compassion travels both ways. In other words, the effects are frequently infectious. People who are the recipients of acts of generosity frequently find up impulsively paying it forward, doing good things for other people.

So as a community, let’s embrace the spirit of giving, love and generosity and practice random acts of kindness in small ways this month…

Here’s a few ideas to get you started:

Let’s change the world, one small act at a time. 

Don’t forget to share how you’re sprinkling some kindness into the month by dropping into our Facebook community and letting us know and be sure to save your Mindtonic as a little reminder to spread the joy this Festive Season.

To everyone in TLC who has shown me kindness, love and compassion since becoming part of this beautiful group I am eternally grateful for your presence and thankful for your kindness of spirit.

Wishing you a peaceful holiday season.

Be good to you,
