National Do Something Nice Day: 5 Benefits of Kindness

On October 5th, Grab Every Opportunity to Do Something Nice for Someone

Kindness can have a ripple effect on people who get to experience or witness it. When you randomly do something nice out of the goodness of your heart, others will be inspired to do the same as well. That’s why on National Do Something Nice Day on October 5th, Kids Car Donations encourages you to show kindness to your family, friends, neighbors, or just about anyone you meet during the day.

Grab every opportunity to demonstrate kindness. Do something to help others or make their lives a little better. Keep in mind that a life that’s lived for others is never wasted.

 

The 5 Benefits of Doing Something Nice

Kindness is a powerful thing. It benefits not only the recipient of the act but the person doing the act as well Here are some of the amazing benefits of doing nice things for other people:

1. It promotes happiness.

Studies show that people who help others find more happiness in their altruistic acts compared to people who try to pursue happiness by focusing on their careers and making tons of money.

2. It enhances your self-esteem.

When you do something nice for somebody or witness a random act of kindness, it causes your brain to release the love hormone, oxytocin. This oxytocin not only helps lower your blood pressure but also helps improve your self-esteem.

3. It’s a mood-booster.

Feeling down or depressed? Do something nice for someone. An act of kindness releases another hormone, serotonin, a natural antidepressant that helps calm a person down and makes them happy.

4. It leads to a better community.

Kindness has a domino effect. When kids see you doing something nice for someone, they’d likely follow your example. Without you knowing it, your act of kindness can potentially build a culture of giving and a sense of community in your neighborhood.

5. It comes back around.

Although you shouldn’t expect something in return when you help a person, good karma has its way of finding its way back to kind people. In your moments of need, someone will step up to help you in the same way that you helped others when you were in their place.
