Show kindness for better mental health. Credible worldwide studies show that those who are kind, caring, compassionate and thoughtful towards others are typically happier and feel ‘complete’ in their lives. They enjoy better physical and mental wellbeing, and are generally happier and more satisfied with their lives. Good physical and psychological health is a great combination to aim for. This can lead to better relationships and that general sense of ‘wellbeing’ we all crave.
