Everyday Kindness

"Kindness is a language we all understand. Even the blind can see it and the deaf can hear it" 
~ Mother Teresa

So you may be thinking, What does kindness have to do with staying healthy?  Have you every had a complete stranger open the door for you?  Someone who saw that you were entering the building in which they were leaving.  They simply took the moment to let you enter before they left the building.  What kind of feelings did your experience?  Did you resent your fellow man for their simple act of kindness or did it leave you with a lighter step in your walk?  For me, a smile comes to my face and a warm thank you is given for their thoughtful deed.  Anytime something happens which make you happy, your body feels more alive and your whole outlook for the day becomes positive and having positive thoughts are way better for your health than carrying around the excess baggage of negativity.  So the next time you have the chance, smile at that person coming in the building, hold the door open for them, and see if you get a return smile from them.  

Stay healthy out there and do a simple kind deed for someone.
