This is a reminder to wear your Kindness T-Shirts or the color yellow this Thursday

and to encourage your students to do the same.

Smiling is not just a universal means of communicating, it’s also a frequent one. More than 30% of us smile more than 20 times a day and less than 14% of us smile less than 5 times a day. In fact, those with the greatest superpowers are actually children, who smile as many as 400 times per day!

 

Kindness is as contagious, like a common cold in the winter. When we are kind to each other, it softens our hearts and makes us want to be kind to others as well. Kindness also has proven to make us happier. When we are happier, we become the best version of ourselves. Teachers and parents are often amazed at some of the Pay It Forward ideas that students come up with. It really does teach a powerful lesson: “That one person can make a difference and help others in need despite age, background, money, or social status. Random acts of kindness inspire us all to be better people.” Thank you for your support of this wonderful initiative. Please share your Pay it Forward stories with us at CommunityKindnessMovement@gmail.com, so your story can inspire others to Pay it Forward. Have a wonderful Kindness Day!

 

Benefits of Smiling:

  • When you smile, you look good and feel good.
  • When others see you smile, they smile too.
  • When you want to tap into a superpower to help yourself and others live longer and to live a healthier and happier lives…SMILE 🙂
  • Smiling seems to give us the same happiness that exercising induces terms of how our brain responds. In short: our brain feels good and tells us to smile, we smile and tell our brain it feels good and so forth. 

 

 

Why does this matter? Smiling leads to decrease in the stress-induced hormones that negatively affect your physical and mental health. Our children need to feel love, need to feel important, need to feel like someone cares about them. Smiling at them and letting them know you care could make a world of difference for them!
