“Spread Kindness, Feel Good! Just thinking positive thoughts about others may enhance your well-being. When college students walked around and practiced loving-kindness for 12 minutes, they reported more happiness, lower anxiety, greater empathy, and higher feelings of connectedness than students who didn’t. “Theoretically, anyone who practices loving-kindness should experience some benefit,” says Dawn M. Sweet, Ph. D., an assistant professor at the University of Idaho and the study author. Why not test it out? When going for a walk, think I wish for this person to be happy as you pass someone. Or the next time you have an unpleasant interaction online, say to yourself, I wish this person peace and freedom from what’s causing distress, says Sweet. “The key is to select a phrase that works for you, use it throughout the day, and really mean it.”

Random Acts of Kindness
You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely. Thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, postal workers, newspaper persons, trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. These acts of kindness have a trickle-down effect.
