Want A Fast Track To Good Health? Try Being Kind

2020-02-18 01:45:021 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Random Acts of Kindness Day falls on Monday this year, but the foundation behind it wants you to consider being kind every day. Spreading kindness not only helps others feel better about themselves, but it can also boost the giver's health and happiness. According to CNN, studies have shown that being altruistic stimulates the reward centers of the brain. Giving donations to others, or "prosocial spending," has been shown to reduce blood pressure and improve heart health. One study showed that people who chose to donate money to help orphans were less sensitive to an electric shock than those who declined to give. The study found that regions of the brain that react to painful stimulation appear to be instantly deactivated by the experience of giving.
