AHS Weekly Wellness: Share Kindness

Share kindness to boost your happiness

Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate. Every day we hear stories about people trying to make the world a better place. Together, we can make the world a little bit kinder for all of us.

Just one act of kindness a day can help reduce stress, anxiety and depression. It can also release feel-good hormones in your body, so you and the person you helped:

  • Feel calmer, healthier and happier
  • More loving and loved
  • More energy, with less aches and pains

Kindness helps you and others by:

  • Enhancing positivity
  • Changing your perspective
  • Creating a sense of community
  • Helping us feel connected to others
  • Reducing stress.

Simple ways to spread kindness:

  • Volunteer
  • Help a friend or neighbor
  • Ask someone how they are feeling
  • Offer support and encouragement to others
  • Say good morning and smile
  • Make someone laugh
  • Be generous with compliments
  • Leave a kind note for someone special.

Kindness is contagious. Pass it on!
