Today, we live in a society where kindness is often looked down on as a weakness. But in reality, kindness- which stems from the Golden Rule- has spiritual, physical, and mental benefits.
In this episode, I talk about why kindness is an essential part of a lifestyle of vitality. I share the concrete benefits of being kind and compassionate toward others, benefits which are mental, physical, and spiritual. I share research on why, when you’re kind, you actually make the world a better place. I explain why kindness increases your resilience, contrary to being a sign of weakness. Finally, I share a poem on kindness.
“When you seek to find the best in others, you also bring out the best in yourself.”
– Dr. Mark Rowe
