For Today’s Act of Kindness Monday, I’d like to thank Gary Dixon and Brooke Jones of Denver, Colorado whose inspiration created Random Acts of Kindness day. I try to imagine the number of people affected by their fantastic idea. This Friday, February 16 is Random Acts of Kindness Day. So open a door, share a smile, buy the person behind you in line at Starbucks or your favorite coffee shop a drink, give a homeless person a pair of socks or a few dollars, sit next to a person in your lunch room eating alone. Let’s all remember to be extra kind to one another on Friday, and let's hope we can remember year round how good it feels to help one another. Scientists have proven that being kind benefits both the recipient and the giver because kindness produces oxytocin, which aids in not only lowering blood pressure and improving our overall heart-health but also increases our self-esteem and optimism.
Thank you Gary and Brooke for your big idea!
