Weekly Kindness Challenge
There’s no vacation from kindness this summer! This week send a gratitude email to someone you don’t interact with as much or even to a loved one. It doesn’t have to be an email – bonus points if it’s handwritten.
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, Galatians 5:22 (NLT Version)
Physical Benefit of Kindness
Being kind reduces stress. Helping others lets you get outside of yourself and take a break from the stressors in your own life and this behavior can also make you better equipped to handle stressful situations. Perpetually kind people have 23% less cortisol (stress hormone) and age slower than the average population. That’s right, kindness is your anti-aging defense!
