100 Ways to Be Kind: Everyday actions to change your life and save the world
by Theresa Cheung
Acts of everyday kindness can boost your mood and immunity, lower blood pressure, ease anxiety, slow the ageing process, improve the quality of your relationships (including the one you have with yourself) and give you a sense of deep meaning and purpose.
100 Ways to be Kind is a road map of practical, simple and immediately actionable ways to be kind including how to be kinder to yourself, to others and to nature.
Theresa debunks the damaging myth that being kind is a weakness and shows that it is not anger or aggression that brings out our true inner grit, but kindness.
Science has proven that there are powerful, potentially lifesaving reasons to be kind. The kinder you are, the more likely you are to experience happiness
Kindness is the simple and scientifically proven remedy that everyone needs to administer right now. So, if you want to harness the power of kindness to transform your life and help save the world at the same time but aren’t quite sure how – this book is for you.
My thoughts: This isn’t the usual sort of non-fiction that I read. My tastes run more to true crime and WWII, but this book called to me, as it seemed so timely. There is quite a lot more to it than I had supposed when I first looked at it, and I was surprised at the well-researched aspects. We’ve surely had enough of it’s opposite in the news and in the world, tossed around freely. It couldn’t hurt for more of us to try some of this in our daily lives. I found it an interesting read, good ideas with so much thought behind them. Advance electronic review copy was provided by NetGalley, author Theresa Cheung, and the publisher.
