“Can you spare just five minutes today to be kind?”
The article was written by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee
“While kindness is, of course, something I hope we all put out into the world – and receive in return – on a daily basis, I’m all for making time to reinforce and celebrate its positive effects.
Being kind to others doesn’t just benefit them. Recent research confirms that kindness can be incredibly beneficial for our wellbeing, too. Psychologists know caring and showing empathy can reduce pain, anxiety, depression and give you more energy, as well as make you happier and extend your life. One study from the Yale School of Medicine in the US found that people who perform more acts of kindness in a day are more resilient to stress and have a more positive outlook on life.
So today, I’d like you to make time for a five-minute act of kindness. See it as something extra, a conscious effort to go above and beyond what you might normally do for others.”
When I read this article yesterday, it was a good feeling to continue with my one Act of Kindness every single day. So yesterday, I posted a kind review about a hotel I had worked from recently- the Hoxton in Southwark, London. Great atmosphere, friendly manager and staff. Good food. An all-round lovely space.
What’s is your 1 Act of Kindness today? Most of us have 5 minutes to spare. Let’s get creative 🙂
I would love to hear from you, so pls share your thoughts.
One life – live it kinder
