Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

Have you ever heard of the

phrase, the kindness contagion?

So this is a phrase that's been doing

the rounds a little bit since the

pandemic started, because there's

also been a wave of kind acts that

have been spreading around the world.

So, did you also know that the

positive effects of an act of kindness

are experienced in the brains of

everyone who witnesses the act?

So research shows that it improves

their mood and makes them significantly

more likely to pay it forward.

In other words, to do

kind acts themselves.

What this means is that one good deed can

indeed create a ripple effect and improve

the day or even the lives of dozens,

hundreds, or even thousands of faithful.

Witnessing kindness, inspires kindness.

So my invitation, knowing that we all

hold that kind of power to influence

others, let's all spread a little

kindness today and then know that

that will ripple out into the world.

It could be a really small act, you

know, a kind word, a genuine compliment,

a listening ear, or a loving touch.

Because even when times are tough, we

can all find ways big and small to be

a force for good in the world and a

support and comfort for each other.

That's mindfulness in action.

That's sharing our best

selves with the world.

And now if you care to, let's

settle in for today's meditation.

And as always thank you for your

practice and your presence here with us.
