Did you know kindness is contagious?!!

Kindness actually makes you live longer - when you are kind it releases a hormone called oxytocin (the 'love hormone'), which is a powerful antioxidant and anti inflammatory compound It's the same hormone that is released when mothers give birth and breastfeed, as well as when people fall in love It creates a feeling of calm, attachment, and elation, and actually reduces stress hormones. It also creates social bonds, improves sleep, and reduces cravings (its been used as an antidote to drug withdrawal) Oxytocin also releases hormones that protect the heart, reduce blood pressure and even prevents ageing (by protecting your telomeres - the end of your DNA molecules) - which makes total sense when you think that chronic loneliness increases the risk of all of these And the best thing is - it's totally free!!!

I love the idea of a kindness challenge - try think of one new way to be kind to someone each day, and challenge your friends and family to do the same - its a habit you'll never regret :-)
