"The positive effect of KINDNESS on the immune system and on the increased production of serotonin in the brain has been proven in research studies.
Serotonin is a naturally occurring substance in the body that makes us feel more COMFORTABLE, PEACEFUL, AND EVEN BLISSFUL. In fact the role of most anti-depressants is to stimulate the production of serotonin chemically, helping to ease depression.
Research has shown that the simple act of kindness directed towards another improves the functioning of the immune system and stimulates the production of serotonin in both the recipient of the kindness and the person extending the kindness.
Even more amazing is that the persons observing the act of kindness have similar beneficial results. Imagine this! Kindness extended, received beneficially impacts the physical health & feelings of everyone involved!"
