‘Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.’
Barbara De Angelis:
Performing an act of kindness releases serotonin in your brain. (Serotonin is a chemical that has great health benefits, including making us feel more blissful.) Selflessly helping someone is a super powerful way to feel good inside.
What’s even more brilliant about this kindness kick is that not only will you feel better, but so will people watching the act of kindness. How extraordinary is that? Bystanders will be blessed with a release of serotonin just by watching what’s going on.
‘When you carry out acts of kindness you get a wonderful feeling inside. It is as though something inside your body responds and says, yes, this is how I ought to feel.’
