Everyone benefits from a random act of kindness. The person you’re helping benefits by the act alone, your community benefits because we’re all in this together, and you benefit simply by taking that extra step of doing something good. Plus, as a side note, studies have shown doing something good helps your immune system and reduces stress, anxiety, and anger. It might seem small, but being kind is one of the most beautiful traits a person can have. Not only that, but acts of compassion and kindness give off positive energy. People can see the joy in your heart. They might even want to emulate it, caring it forward to someone else. It’s important to be kind to everyone around you. You don’t know what another person could be going through. Ready to be inspired? Here are some remarkable random acts of kindness that’ll inspire you.
