A selfless act of kindness is not just good for the soul. Studies have shown a valid link between kindness to others and stress reduction, peace and happiness. As we recognize RAK Week here at SYNERGY HomeCare of Lakewood, I am happy to be able to share a recent experience of one of our team members.
“I was at a breakfast house the other day when I noticed an elderly couple having breakfast. The husband was helping his wife eat her meal. When the husband got up to pay the bill I noticed the wife had put her coat on upside down and was having difficulty with it. I arose from my chair walked over to her and asked her if I may be of assistance. I helped her get out of the coat never saying anything to her that is was on upside down. I helped her put her coat on. The husband walked over to me and thanked me. All the other patrons in the restaurant complimented me after the couple left. I wasn't looking for compliments; I was offering a random act of kindness to a stranger. But it felt good to me too.”
Take the challenge this week, and any time, to search for things to put a smile on someone’s face. Of course you do it selflessly, but take a moment to allow yourself to feel the happiness it brought to you as well!
