Intro Post:

“There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind.  The second way is to be kind.  The third way is to be kind.” –Mr. Rogers



Did You Know?

  • Kindness is teachable. You can build kindness by teaching empathy skills and practicing compassion.
  • Kindness is contagious.  The positive effects of kindness are experienced in those that do kind acts AND those who witness kindness—leading to positive feelings and more kindness.
  • Kindness increases certain hormones and chemicals in the body (oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins) which can increase positive feelings, promote optimism, improves self-esteem, help calm you down and reduce pain and stress.
  • Kindness activates your brain’s reward system.  Studies shows your brain’s pleasure and reward centers “light up” when you receive or give an act of kindness.
