Kindness... The Secret Sauce

Why Kindness?

We can all agree that life throws unexpected curve balls our way. Regardless of our success, no one person is free from the ups and downs that make up the journey of life. Hardship comes in many forms from loneliness, financial strain, illness, trauma, loss, feelings of inadequacy and the list goes on and on. However, with kindness comes hope. And with hope we can overcome every obstacle, we can rise above and tap into a strength we never knew existed. Kindness is the secret ingredient that makes life worth living.

Science of Giving

Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Little did Churchill know that there is actually scientific evidence to prove that by giving we do in fact increase the quality of our life. Giving to others gives the human race back the one commodity that we are in constant pursuit of – HAPPINESS!

People who give contributions of time or money are “42 percent more likely to be happy” than those who don’t give (- Harvard “Social Capital Community Benchmark Survey”).

Giving vs Receiving

Studies have shown that spending on others feels better than spending on yourself.

Helpers High

Giving has also been linked to the release of oxytocin, a hormone that induces feelings of warmth, euphoria, and connection to others. A dose of oxytocin causes people to give more generously, feel more empathy towards others and the best part is that the so called “symptoms” last up to two hours!

Brain Power

Giving donations to charity has been proven to lead to activation in the ventral striatum, a brain region that’s commonly referred to as the reward center.

The greatest thing of all is that when a person gives, they catch a glimpse of just how amazing they are, the potential they have and they suddenly become filled with a sense of purpose.
