Celebrating Kindness

As we approach Valentine's Day and start to naturally think of others, it seems only appropriate that National Random Acts of Kindness Week is February 14th - 20th. (Random Acts of Kindness Day is Wednesday, February 17th.) From boosting your mood, to lowering stress, the power of kindness is proven. In fact, science shows the benefits of kindness are greater for the giver than the receiver. So, here are some activities to practice that will support everyone's social-emotional well being while helping others and helping yourself along the way. costs nothing, but means everything!

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
