24: The Importance of Kindness and Its Impact on Your Life


The definition of kindness is the quality of being generous, considerate, and friendly. It’s a simple concept, but one that can be difficult to put into action at all times. Have you ever stopped to think about the importance of kindness and how it can impact you? 

In this episode, we chat candidly about kindness and altruism. Also, we dive into the vast amounts of research about kindness and how it can impact our physical health as well as our life satisfaction. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • What exactly is kindness? 
  • The difference between kindness and altruism     
  • Why kindness is not always completely selfless
  • The health benefits of being kind
  • How service and household income impact life satisfaction 

If you weren’t already convinced of the importance of kindness, then I hope that this episode does the trick. Kindness truly is a quality that benefits the giver as much as it does the receiver. In the uncertainty of our current situations, one thing that we can all control is the choice to be kind. I hope that you will choose kindness and impact the world around you for good.
