It's Random Acts of Kindness Week! Have you filled a random parking meter? Have you written a note to a random person at work? Have you given your seat upgrades randomly away? So many great acts of kindness to choose from - get started today!
"When we give to others it activates the areas of the brain associated with pleasure, social connection and trust. Altruistic behaviour releases endorphins in the brain and boosts happiness for us as well as the people we help. Studies have shown that giving money away tends to make people happier than spending it on themselves."
I recently came across this in-depth, tangible list of action steps on how exactly to pursue "happiness". For this week, Random Acts of Kindness Week, numbers 2, 5, and 14 are great to begin with. Thanks to Action for Happiness for the action list, I can't wait to hear what you all do - an remember a High Five goes a long way!
Go get your random on! It's Random Act of Kindness Week....Month...Life!
