What does kindness look like to you? Whether it’s in thought or action, kindness has the potential to positively impact your well-being as well as other people’s too.

Showing, receiving or even just seeing acts of kindness lifts our mood and improves our connectedness with others. Often, people who experience kindness want to ‘pay it forward’ and this can create a positive impact on the wider community.

Kindness may even have a positive physical impact on some people as it produces oxytocin (the ‘love hormone’) which can lower blood pressure and improve our overall heart-health. 

Whether you’re the person everyone thinks of when they visualise a ‘kind’ friend/colleague/neighbour, or you’re someone who feels they could offer a little more, we all have the capacity to develop our kindness further.

Some great websites to motivate action and get you and your little ones inspired are Random Acts of Kindness and Ripple Kindness Project.

Thanks for reading!
