Kindness is defined as doing something toward yourself and others, motivated by genuine desire to make a positive difference. Kindness is shown to increase self-esteem and mood, decrease stress levels, improve relationships, slow aging, and is accompanied by emotional warmth. Research shows kindness and mental health are deeply connected.
We at Kingsland Walk Senior Living know that one act of kindness can lead to many more. Kindness is contagious and it begins with you!
To me, kindness means being a friend and helping. One way to encourage kindness and put a smile on someone’s face is by doing something for someone they don’t expect. We can help to inspire others to spread kindness by doing the unexpected and not anticipating anything in return.
I have a resident who goes to check on her neighbor when she doesn’t come out of her apartment, because she knows her neighbor needs encouragement and a smiling face. When she visits, the other resident is delighted and comes to the dining room with her and is happier.
Kindness is important to health and well-being. The happier you are the better you feel.
Kingsland Walk Senior Living practices kindness each day with every resident, whether they live in Assisted Living or Memory Care. Arrow Senior Living believes “Acts of Kindness can drive change in the world.” We hope kindness finds its way to and from you.
