Good Deed For Day Helps Us All - The Mirror Article, November 2016

One conscious kind act a day is the best thing uni can do to be kinder to other people - and yourself.

It can range from opening the door for someone, to calling someone up for a chat, to doing acts of kindness such as paying for someone’s tea or coffee.

It may be contacting someone who is unwell, complimenting someone at work - whatever suits the individual person. There’s scientific evidence showing an act of kindness causes beneficial chemical changes in the brain for both people.

We at Kindness UK call the Helper’s High. It makes you instantly feel better and has a positive effect on both your health and longevity. Kindness really can, I believe, help you live longer.

In times of stress and uncertainty, the kindness level does seem to recoil but it is still there.

Imagine a world where kindness was part of the curriculum at school - what a different world we would live in.
