“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention.” –Kahlil Gibran
kindness is teachable and contagious
Studies have shown that if you perform one random act of kindness a day, it will not only reduce your stress, anxiety, and depression, but it also floods your body with the same hormones that make you and the person you have helped calmer, healthier, and happier.
November 13th is World Kindness Day, but we want to celebrate and promote kindness year-round. As part of the library’s Be Well campaign, we will be hosting events and activities all about kindness throughout November and into the new year.
Exciting news! The library will be hosting a 30-Day Kindness Challenge.
Please come by the library to sign-up for the challenge and receive your 30-Day Kindness card. Acts of kindness must be completed and returned to the library by Tuesday, December 10th, 2019. Participants who complete the challenge have the chance to win a movie night gift basket, including an AMC gift card!
In the meantime, be sure to check out Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Foundation, a small nonprofit that invests in making kindness the norm. RAK’s website offers great information about how showing kindness to others can increase your energy, happiness, and serotonin levels, while also decreasing anxiety, stress, and depression! In addition, they provide kindness ideas, calendars (which will be offered at the library), stories, and more for you to explore! Visit the RAK website, here.
