October Profriend Challenge

Take a moment out of each day to do an act of kindness for another. These acts of kindness are not only beneficial to the person receiving the act but also the person doing the act. Lower stress levels, lessened anxiety, and an overall sense of calm are just some of the feelings created from doing acts of kindness.
