RAK Week

In all my kindness lessons this month I touch on the message of this quote. Today is the start of Random Acts of Kindness Week. Smiling is contagious so smiling at a person may change their whole day and ripple out to countless others. Kindness elevates the level of dopamine in the doer's brain ("Helper's High"), the receiver's brain, and the observer's brain. The other message I deliver in every class is BE KIND TO YOURSELF. With the 5th graders I introduce the idea of self-compassion http://greatergood_selfcompassion
