There is a disorder that not to many people are familiar with. It’s called Kindness. Kindness is a disease that can contaminate anyone! Do not be alarmed, but read on to see if you may of been bitten by the kindness bug.
-Being nice to people
-Participating in Random Acts of Kindness
-Smiling at others
Side Effects of Kindness:
When one is kind, the brain releases more morphine and heroine which we call endogenous opioids. They elevate dopamine, which makes us feel happy. So it may seem like you’re just doing good deeds, but you’re really making your body happy.
2. Healthy Hearts
After being kind, your body will produce oxytocin. Oxytocin is a neuromodulater which releases nitric oxide which expands blood vessels. It protects your heart by lowering your blood pressure. So it makes your heart feel good, and it can make you healthier!
3. Slows Aging
Oxytocin also reduces levels of free radicals and inflammation which slows down the aging process.
4. Better Relationships
People are connected on a deeper level when they both show kindness. Kindness is a “bonding” mechanism, and they feel closer, quicker.
*BEWARE: Kindness is VERY CONTAGIOUS. So you could be the next infected!
I hope you all get infected with the kindness bug! xoxo
