What does it mean to be kind? As a matter of fact, what is kindness in general? Well, kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Being kind is doing something that aids others motivated by genuine feelings. This means putting others before yourself to help fulfill their needs. When practicing kindness we can experience positive mental and physical changes through our feel-good hormones such as dopamine. November 13th is the official day of World Kindness Day so what can you do this year to express your kindness to others? Here are 6 tips that you can do to spread kindness not only on November 13th but year-round.
