Do acts of kindness need to be random or can they be part of daily life? The New Horizons Project has a worthwhile post considering acts of kindness in a new light.

“It can often be difficult to find others performing acts of kindness in today’s society as we seem to be developing a culture of personal advance and success to the detriment of others…If you look closely, though, you will find that there is a group of people who perform acts of kindness everyday without a second thought for their own well-being or safety.” (full article)

Readers are also directed to Kindness@work to submit their stories for publication in an e-book. Please support this worthwhile cause and share your stories, however small.

Did you know performing random acts of kindness potentially has health benefits? In a worthwhile article Health on the hill has summarised some of these:
  • Helper’s high – Often times, do-gooders experience a rush of euphoria, followed by a period of calm. This sensation releases endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.
  • Diminishes stress-related health problems – By helping others, you are likely to reverse feelings of depression, hostility and isolation, which means you are less likely to experience stress or ulcers. For some, a reduction in stress helps to decrease lung constriction, which often leads to asthma attacks.
  • The benefits return – When you remember the kind act, the health benefits and sense of well-being can return for hours or days.
  • Happy thoughts – Helping can enhance feelings of joyfulness, emotional resilience, vigor and optimism.
  • Affiliative connection – This term refers to the creation of a positive relationship with someone, and such connections strengthen the immune system.

Please do check out the full article.
