“Those who make compassion an essential part of their lives find the joy of life. Kindness deepens the spirit and produces rewards that cannot be completely explained in words. It is an experience more powerful than words. To become acquainted with kindness one must be prepared to learn new things and feel new feelings. Kindness is more than a philosophy of the mind. It is a philosophy of the spirit. ” ~ Robert J. Furey
Did you know that it was scientifically proven that being kind can make you happier? Yes!
I remember hearing about this research in one of Wayne Dyer’s audiobooks. Apparently, whenever someone engages in acts of kindness, no matter if big or small, the serotonin levels increase in both the giver and receiver of an act of kindness. And to make things even more interesting, anyone who witnesses an act of kindness also has an increase in serotonin levels. The giver, receiver, and those who witness the act of kindness experience a boost in happiness 🙂
A little bit of kindness can go a long way. And this beautiful video is proof of that.
