Random Acts of Kindness Week: February 13-19

Did you know this week is Random Acts of Kindness Week?  According to the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, “There are scientifically proven benefits of being kind.  The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to ‘pay it forward.’ This means one good deed in a crowded area can create a domino effect and improve the day for dozens of people!  This month celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week and reap some of those benefits for your team.”

The kindness calendars provide many easy, practical and effective ideas for improving your wellness as well as those around you, and there is a new idea each day of the year!  We still have some calendars left, so just email wellness@uwgb.edu if you would like one sent to you.  If you prefer an online calendar, or just want to check it out, click here to view the calendar online.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
