DID YOU KNOW THAT ENGAGING IN ACTS OF KINDNESS PRODUCES ENDORPHINS, THE BRAIN’S NATURAL PAIN KILLER?
Being nice has scientifically proven benefits. Kindness reduces pain, stress, anxiety, sadness, and blood pressure, among other things. It even produces feel-good chemicals to our bodies and thoughts. However, the impact is just temporary. The benefits of a single act of kindness can only last so long. That’s why kindness is most effective as a habit—something we incorporate into our everyday lives, whether through volunteer work, dropping cash in an expired parking metre, bringing a snack to share with your coworkers, or waiting for someone in the elevator.
The body’s natural painkillers are endorphins. Endorphins are peptide hormones that are generated by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland in reaction to pain or stress. They reduce pain while also creating a general sense of well-being. And when we experience acts of kindness, our brain releases these endorphins, therefore reinforcing a natural pain killer.
