Benefits of Kindness – Why Is Kindness ImportantHFF Admin
Kindness is important in the world. Imagine a world where people do not have kindness, compassion and mercy for one another! Imagine how difficult and rotten life would become if all people became selfish and did not care for their fellow human beings.
It is really difficult to think how it would be to live in such a world. Thankfully kindness is a trait which is still very common among people. Soft-heartedness, politeness, good manners and behavior, kindness and affection towards others are things which add to the beauty of life. It makes life easy and comfortable for all humans.
The good news is that research now says that kindness has many benefits for the doer as well as for the receiver. If someone is at the receiving end of kindness, we can all imagine his pleasure. However what many people don’t know is that committing acts of kindness can help the person who is doing it. It can be beneficial to his mental and physical health.
According to Dr. David R. Hamilton, acts of kindness create emotional warmth, which releases a hormone known as oxytocin. Oxytocin causes the release of a chemical called nitric oxide, which dilates the blood vessels.
Moreover the above linked article says that kindness can spread to others as well. This means if people see you doing acts of kindness they may be inspired to act in similar way themselves. So doing acts of kindness can inspire and motivate others to do the same and thus life can become lovely for all people!
