The KentRidge Senior Living Demonstrates Acts of Kindness During Be Kind to Humankind Week

Category: Wellness

Author: Kara Wilhelm, Director of Wellness

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 KentRidge Senior Living know that one act of kindness can lead to many more. Kindness is contagious and it begins with you!

To me, kindness means being genuine, showing true empathy, doing for others, and expecting nothing in return. Some ways to encourage kindness and put a smile on someone’s face are smiling, providing positive feedback, and offering encouragement.

We can help to inspire others to spread kindness by being a good example. An example of showing kindness would be taking the time to sit with someone that is having a bad day and genuinely listening.

Kindness is important to health and well-being. It helps others to feel better by boosting confidence and self-esteem.
