The science behind being kind

One act of kindness can actually make you feel better! 

Science agrees that performing one act of kindness can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also aid you to become calmer, healthier, and happier. Long story short – the kinder you are, the better you will feel! 

This World Heart Day, be kinder to lower your blood pressure!

 According to Dr. David R. Hamilton, being kind causes emotional warmth, which produces the hormone known as oxytocin in the brain and body. When you release oxytocin, a chemical known as nitric oxide is released into the blood vessels, which makes them expand and lowers your blood pressure.
