Did you know that being kind has many positive effects on your mental health? On World Kindness Day, let us acknowledge these benefits and help make the world a better place; believe it or not, it is contagious!
The effects of being kind includes relief of stress, pain, anxiety, depression, and even reduces blood pressure. But how does this happen? Acts of kindness releases hormones such as endorphins, serotonin, and oxytocin from the brain that regulates these emotions and blood vessels, respectively. People who stress less happen to age slower as well. These benefits are the beginning to improving self-worth and personal relationships, as you not only feel good about yourself but also increases self-belief. It even reduces the distance between two people.
It’s hard not to smile about these wonderful, natural effects. Don’t be afraid to show off your pearly whites and that new smile. We look forward to helping you maintain a happier and healthier lifestyle at River Street Family Dental.
