You Go First
Challenge: Let someone go ahead of you in line. We all have somewhere to be, if you’re not in a hurry let someone go ahead of you!
Challenge: Offer hugs to your friends or peers and with their consent share a hug.
Being kind is giving even when it seems like you have nothing to give. Even when you have nothing, you still have a hug.
- Hugging has been scientifically proven to increase levels of the hormone that makes us happy.
- Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which heal feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anger
- And the longer you hug someone you care about the better you both will feel! Your heart rate will slow a bit and your stress hormones will dissipate.
“Being kind isn’t always easy. Or convenient. But it has the potential to change everything”.
