KindnessAltruism has many positive effects, including improved mood, boosted immune functioning, and decreased stress.  Today, look for an opportunity to be kind to someone.  How about:


  • Hold the door or elevator for someone
  • Let someone merge in traffic
  • Pay a genuine compliment to someone; if you’re not around people today, you can do this electronically (kind words to a favorite blog author, perhaps?)

Longer Term:

  • Is there an individual, family, organization, or cause you would like to support?  Spend some time thinking of ways you could contribute on an ongoing basis.
