Spark Kindness to Foster Connection and Social Well-Being

Being kind is truly a superpower that has many benefits: Developing kindness for ourselves brings balance to our mind, helps us develop connected relationships and gives us resources to care for others.

Kindness feels really good for both the giver and the recipient of a kind act, and it spreads in a powerful and wonderful way.
