Try a little kindness: it’s Random Acts of Kindness Day (RAK DAY). Everyone can always use a bit of uplifting, especially with so much ugliness in our world. We can’t think of a better way to be Socially Sparked® than to cease the DAY! Did you know that being kind to another is good for your body, mind and soul?

RAK Day is the Finale to Random Acts of Kindness Week (February 11 – 17th), an annual celebration held the second week of February launched by The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. The international non-profit organization was founded in 1995 with the goal to make Earth the kindest planet in the universe — ultimately to make kindness the standard in every aspect of life. For the 2018 campaign, RAK wants you to tell them who that ‘one’ person is who inspires you to be a better human being?

KINDNESS IS GOOD FOR MIND, BODY & SOUL

According to the RAK Website, various studies say–

KINDNESS INCREASES:

    THE LOVE HORMONE

    ENERGY

    HAPPINESS

    LIFESPAN

    PLEASURE

    SEROTONIN

So try a little kindness everyday, but especially today. To reiterate, with all the ugliness in the world and, closer to home — the recent horrific tragedy in Florida — being kind will go a long way to a better world. — Abbe is Socially Sparked! Tweet @sosparkednews & @asparks01
