Mother Teresa - Be Kind
WASHINGTON, February 15, 2016 – Look back with honesty.  Is there a time in your past where you could have been kinder – to a spouse, girlfriend or boyfriends, child, sibling, parent or stranger.

Did you know that people who are kind produce 23% less cortisol (the stress hormone) and age slower than the average population? It’s true. Engaging in acts of kindness actually lowers blood pressure and reduces stress.

Science also shows that being kind rewards everyone with increased energy and well-being–even people viewing the kindness are infused with better health – physical and emotional.  Happy is good and it starts with being kind.
