Kindness is defined as doing something toward yourself and others, motivated by genuine desire to make a positive difference. Kindness is shown to increase self-esteem and mood, decrease stress levels, improve relationships, slow aging, and is accompanied by emotional warmth. Research shows kindness and mental health are deeply connected.
We at VITALIA Senior Residences® at Strongsville know that one act of kindness can lead to many more. Kindness is contagious and it begins with you!
To me, kindness means being selfless, caring, compassionate, and unconditionally kind. Some ways to encourage kindness and put a smile on someone’s face is to compliment them genuinely, give some words of encouragement, express your gratitude, and offer words of support.
We can help to inspire others to spread kindness by demonstrating love and care. We all need to feel that we are loved and cared for every now and then.
Donating our toys is a good example of an act of kindness. Used toys often end up in trash bins. We outgrow them, but they never outgrow us. Donating them to children in need can greatly improve their quality of life.
Kindness is important to health and well-being. Kindness is caring about others and doing things to help make their lives better. It allows us to connect with other people and build meaningful relationships. When someone is kind to us, we feel connected and more willing to cooperate with them.
