October Challenge- Random Acts of Kindness

 Showing kindness can have a positive impact on your health

Helping a neighbor, volunteering, or donating goods results in a “helper’s high”, this can achieve the same health benefits that you would experience from exercise or stop smoking. The most powerful way to increase your short-term feelings of happiness and keep that “helper’s high” is by performing random acts of kindness to others. By doing five random acts of kindness in a month, you can increase your happiness for up to three months.

During this monthly challenge, participants will need to complete 2-4 random acts of kindness a week, for a total 8-12 completed activities.  Participants should download the tracking sheet for random acts of kindness ideas.
