Did you know…that whether you are the giver, the receiver or the observer of an act of kindness — you reap tremendous benefits to your health?
Too often we are so busy in our own lives that we fail to see others who could use our help. However, if we choose to keep our eyes open to discover ways to help others in need some amazing can happen for both us and receiver.
One of the most fascinating research findings to come out in recent years is that whenever a simple act of kindness is extended by a human being towards another, it results in a significant improvement in the functioning of the immune system and increased production of serotonin in both the recipient of the kindness as well as in the person extending the kindness.
The benefits of kindness are not limited to immune system strengthening and serotonin production. Research has shown that those who routinely engage in acts of kindness, such as volunteers, experience alleviation of stress, chronic pain, and even insomnia.
So if you are looking to improve your life, look to find the opportunities to serve others in kindness. Are your eyes open today?
Do you dream of the world being a happier place? If you do, know that you can be a part of it by developing your kind attitude. Sharing a little bit of kindness everyday makes the world a happier place. Each kind act sends a ripple forward that is unending. Will you begin developing your kind attitude today?
Start a ripple… Create a wave. It begins with YOU!
We’re sure you have noticed, this world of ours is in need of kindness. On any given day you have probably walked down the street past a number of people who do not even take the time to look at you let alone smile. Our busy schedules, the pull of cell phones and ipads, financial pressures and on and on makes so many of us less than mindful of others all around us. The need for everyday kindness is loud and clear and we intend to do something about it. Will you join us? Visit our campaign at The Kindness Wave You will be helping us greatly in our mission to awaken everyday kindness. Thanks for you support!

Kindness Matters! Choose to be kind at all times and your life will prosper!
Disaster can often bring out the worst and the best in people. There has been a lot of devastation brought on by Hurricane Sandy and many people are suffering. One thing is certain, the kindness of others in desperately needed at this time and it is being found everywhere.
Several days ago, Newark Mayor Corey Booker tweeted, “Police have reported ZERO looting or crimes of opportunity in Newark. And ceaseless reports of acts of kindness abound everywhere.”
Reports of acts of kindness are showing up all over the place and although there is still a lot of people in great need these acts are making a real difference. Is there something you can do to help? There will be relief efforts going on in the coming days and you can tune into those. You can make a donation to the Red Cross as they have been responding to the needs already. Or you can simply remeber that everyday kindness matters and share some today!
