10 ways to spread some kindness today
It’s Kindness Day UK! And to celebrate, we’re looking at simple ways to spread some kindness. Plus, according to surveys for cash, kindness is officially good for you!
What is Kindness Day UK? Surveys for cash reveal many of us don’t know
Kindness Day UK comes around every year on 13th November. It’s a nationally recognised day for the celebration of kindness in society, and in our everyday lives. Acts of kindness are encouraged on this day annually, and those who are kind to others are also recognised.
Although previous acts of kindess have involved giving out flowers and chocolates to people, it’s perfectly possible to use today to do something kind for someone else – and it doesn’t have to cost us any money at all.
Paid surveys UK ask: Why be kind?
As well as spreading a little happiness with a random act of kindness, scientific studies and surveys for cash have shown there’s more to it than that!
According to one paid survey, 65% of people say they perform a random act of kindness every day, and 83% of people taking part in the surveys for cash said they do something kind for others at least once a week. How lovely!
Over half of the people in the online survey said they did random acts of kindness just because it makes them feel good. But why?
The answer is that there is some science behind wanting to make people smile! Paid surveys UK discovered that the benefits of spreading kindness are bigger than we may think. For example, kindness is contagious; witnessing acts of kindness produces oxytocin, the feel-good hormone, which is good for our helping our heart health as well as making us want to help others in turn. What’s more, according to surveys for cash, over 50% of people in one study reported that they feel stronger and more energetic after helping others. Plus, a paid survey by Harvard Business School found that people who are generous and support charities were happiest overall. So really it’s win win!
