A kind road to happiness (2)
The sharing and ventilating of personal feelings play a major role in the relief of stress and depression. It has been seen that people who have one or more close friendships appear to be happier.
Kindness and friendliness are both a skill and a value. One of the greatest paradoxes in modern life is that while, on average, existence has become more consumer-oriented over time, sacrificing attitude with happiness has fallen. But at the end of the day, most world scholars found that people should focus on others first and themselves second.
Acts of kindness can only make the world a happier place for everyone as the standard pillars of kindness sound and mean universally. They can boost feelings of confidence, being in control, happiness, and optimism. Being kind boosts serotonin and dopamine, which are neurotransmitters in the brain that give us feelings of satisfaction with happiness and well-being and cause the pleasure or reward centers in our brain to light up. Endorphins - our body's natural painkillers, also can be released. There was a research study done in Japan that showed that happy people were kinder than people who were not happy.
There is a strong connection between our own happiness and being kinder to others; Kindness is one of the most important qualities a person can have. It could be the only road towards personal to global peace and happiness.
The thing that counts most in the pursuit of happiness is choosing the right factor named kindness. That is why it is said that 'kindness is the essential ingredient for the recipe for happiness'.
