Make Kindness The Norm

Why choose kindness?

Witnessing acts of kindness produces oxytocin, occasionally referred to as the 'love hormone' which aids in lowering blood pressure and improving our overall heart-health. Oxytocin also increases our self-esteem and optimism, which is extra helpful when we're in anxious or shy in a social situation.

Why promote kindness in our schools?

Kindness is a key ingredient that enhances positivity and helps children feel good about themselves as it increases serotonin levels... Children with a positive outlook have greater attention spans, more willingness to learn, and better creative thinking to improve results at school. Acts of kindness also prevent the onset of bullying and align children to each other and make them ‘treat those as they wish to be treated’.

How will you be kind to yourself or someone else today?

Acts of kindness are simple:

· A good old-fashioned hug

· foot rub see the benefits of reflexology

· positive affirmations

· counting blessings

· showing gratitude

· changing negative thoughts into positive thoughts

· a gesture; putting out the bins/picking up wet towels off the floor

· a note of love 'I love you'

· a special treat in the lunchbox

We can choose our thoughts and how we look after our bodies and minds.
