Kindness has the power to increase life satisfaction, decrease pain, and even change our biology to live longer! Just 1 random act of kindness a day floods your body with the calming hormones of serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins, leaving with much more than just a smile!

‘Loving Kindness’ meditations are another way to reap the rewards of kindness. Scientists can’t quite figure out why these meditations are so good for you, but they really are incredible! You can boost your mood, lessen physical pain, and get a cellular anti-ageing fix in just a few sessions.
