Random Acts Of Kindness

A random act of kindness is a term you are more than likely familiar with. A subtle gesture of goodwill without expecting anything in return. It doesn’t have to be a grand, sweeping display. It can be little, and almost unnoticeable; a small but impactful exchange between you and the recipient. A kind word, a helping hand, a warm smile.

Kindness spreads like a flame and the energy of positivity radiates. Your act of kindness has the power to change your entire day, week or month and certainly affect the lives of those close to you. We never can be sure of the outcome of a random act of kindness, only that it will be positive.

Kindness carries with a set of proven positive benefits to your overall wellbeing too. If we break it down to a science, kindness releases a hormone known as oxytocin which is responsible for forming bonds and trust. Studies on kindness have also shown that we receive a hit of dopamine when we are kind, which is further positive reinforcement.

For this whole month, I would love for you to try this little experiment of being kind for no reason at all. Use it as a tool to connect with yourself and those around you and take note of how you feel throughout the entire month. Notice if there are any changes to physiology and temperament. Notice if you are finding yourself judge less and love more. Notice any change at all and keep track. This is just an experiment after all.
