Kindness to Others Helps You Too!

Hey kids! I wanted to take some time today to talk with you about kindness.

I bet you already know what kindness is, and you’re probably a kind person yourself! But sometimes it’s good to have a reminder about just how important kindness is.

Did you know that when you do nice things for people, your brain actually makes chemicals called endorphins that make you feel happy? That means that the nice things you do for other people don’t just make them feel better – they make you feel better too! Even just watching other people do nice things for each other can make us feel happier. When we’re kind to one another, everyone feels happier.

Kindness has a ton of other benefits too! People who are kind make more friends and have better relationships with their friends, family members, teachers, and all the other people in their lives. People who are kind also feel less stressed, tired and anxious – this helps them concentrate and do better in school, sports, music, and any other activities in which they are participants.

Like any skill in life, the more you practice kindness, the better you become at it! Try thinking of something nice you’ve done for another person today. What did you do for them? How did it make them feel? How did it make you feel? Is it something you would want to do again? Now try thinking of something kind another person has done for you, and ask yourself those same questions.
