Kindness comes from the heart because your intention is to be kind. You give kindness with the words you use, the dignity with which you treat people, and your interactive style with others. Show kindness by offering others smiles, and acknowledging each person whether you know them or not. Kindness creates a circle starting when you complete a kindness action, then it results in happiness, and in turn causes the desire to do another kindness. This circle makes you want to do nice things for others. Kindness becomes YOU.
Research has shown completing acts of kindness makes one happy and has a profound effect of happiness over the long term. You can help change the people around you simply with kindness.

Demonstrate kindness through your actions and words to show them a new way.
