Do you see the glass
as half empty or half
full? Developing studies
suggest that positive and
negative outlooks on life can
affect your physical health.
One way to increase positivity
and emotional well-being is
showing kindness to others.
Showing kindness can trigger
“reward” pathways in your brain
and lead to feelings of happiness
and well-being. Continuous activation
of this part of the brain has been linked
to lower levels of stress hormones.
Reducing your stress can have a considerable
impact on lowering your blood pressure and
keeping your heart healthy.
Be mindful of kindness as you go about your day.
Hold the door for people, compliment them, and
provide help to those who need it. Volunteering
for a local shelter or charity can also be a great
way to increase positivity in your life.
