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?
