Studies have found that acts of kindness are linked to increased feelings of wellbeing.
Helping others is thought to be one of the ways that people create, maintain, and strengthen their social connections.
Many people don’t realise the impact a different perspective can have on their outlook on life.
There is some evidence that being aware of our own acts of kindness, as well as the things we are grateful for, can increase feelings of happiness, optimism and satisfaction.
Doing good may help you to have a more positive outlook about your own circumstances.
Acts of kindness have the potential to make the world a happier place. An act of kindness can boost feelings of confidence, being in control, happiness and optimism.
They may also encourage others to repeat the good deeds they’ve experienced themselves – contributing to a more positive community.
The benefits of helping others can last long after the act itself, for those offering kindness, and those who benefit. This, in turn, can improve our self-esteem.
