Want to Make A Difference? Be Kind

Most of us have a desire to make our community, our family or even our world a better place.  The challenge that many of us face, is that goal seems so daunting…so huge.  So in the face of an insurmountable challenge, some people just decide to give up.  They ask, “What could I do to actually have in impact?”

Turns out the answer is pretty easy.  Just be kind.

When you do something nice for someone else, they get a boost of a chemical in our body called Oxytocin.  Research shows that this chemical has health benefits that include reducing stress, decreasing anxiety and increasing trust (among many other benefits).  That same chemical is released in YOUR body (at equal levels) when you do that kind act.  Cool huh? 

But wait, there’s more.

When someone witnesses your act of kindness, this uninvolved bystander actually gets an equal boost in Oxytocin as well!  So with one small generous act, you have improved the day (and lives) of at least 3 people.  Not bad.

So go out today and make the world a better place.  You have the power to do it.  Just be kind.
