Kindness Catchers

Place this poster up somewhere prominent. When you spot someone being kind, write their name and the kind deed on a butterfly.

Research indicates that kindness enhances our wellbeing. In particular, performing acts of kindness can release the hormone oxytocin, which makes us feel good and decreases stress. Kindness can also activate endorphins in areas of the brain associated with pleasure, social connections and trust. These feelings inspire further acts of kindness causing a ripple effect.

Kindness is a character strength that we should be focusing on all the time.
