Kindness is defined as doing something toward yourself and others, motivated by genuine desire to make a positive difference. Kindness is shown to increase self-esteem and mood, decrease stress levels, improve relationships, slow aging, and is accompanied by emotional warmth. Research shows kindness and mental health are deeply connected.
We at The Parkway Senior Living know that one act of kindness can lead to many more. Kindness is contagious and it begins with you!
To me, kindness is the act of doing something positive, good, or considerate for someone without expecting something in return. Kindness is something you do for another person selflessly. The best way to encourage kindness and put a smile on someone’s face is to simply be kind yourself.
We should all try to do something good or help someone daily. We can help inspire others to spread kindness by giving compliments, spreading positivity, and having a child-like sense of wonder.
Having someone be kind to you and showing you appreciation improves your mood. Kindness goes a long way and helps build your overall feeling of emotions. Just simply seeing someone happy and with a genuine smile on their face spreads kindness.
Kindness is very important to everyone’s health and well-being. It promotes good feelings and happy healthy moods. The more kindness you give, the more kindness you are sure to receive.
The Parkway Senior Living practices kindness each day with every resident, whether they live in Independent Living, Assisted Living, or Memory Care. Arrow Senior Living believes “Acts of Kindness can drive change in the world.” We hope kindness finds its way to and from you.
