Be kind to others – It is good for your health

Kindness does not require big efforts; rather it’s about being kind to others in small ways in all walks of everyday life.

Being kind to others obviously helps improve relationships because everybody likes people who are genuinely kind to him. But I was surprised to know that kindness actually creates certain chemical changes in our body which greatly help us to achieve and maintain good health. I became aware of this when I saw a couple of days back an interesting short video by Dr. David Hamilton at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYyNq6Ezs00 about “Why kindness is good for you”. You may enjoy watching it. He explains how the acts of kindness help relax the arteries and improve blood flow in turn reducing blood pressure. It also helps remove free radicals from the system which are a cause of cancer.
