Let’s Discuss The Health Benefits of Random Acts of Kindness

Did you know that performing random acts of kindness can actually improve your mental and physical health?

It’s true!

Researchers have found that when people perform kind acts for others, it not only makes them feel good, but it also has a positive effect on their overall health.

But why is this the case?

What Performing Random Acts of Kindness Does For Your Health

According to experts, there are several reasons why being kind can be good for your overall health. For one, kindness releases endorphins in the brain, which have been shown to improve mood and reduce stress.

Additionally, kindness causes the body to release oxytocin, which is known as the “love hormone” because it promotes feelings of happiness and well-being. Oxytocin has also been found to lower blood pressure and promote overall heart health.

Kindness also stimulates the production of serotonin, which plays a key role in several body functions, such as mood, sleep, digestion, nausea, wound healing, bone health, and blood clotting.

Finally, kindness helps to create a sense of community and social support, both of which are important for maintaining (and improving) mental and physical health.



How To Pick The Best Vitamins and Supplements For Your Family

When it comes to choosing dietary supplements, the choices can be a little overwhelming. If you go into a store like Walmart, there are usually entire aisles dedicated just to supplements, and it is estimated that there are more than 29,000 different options available to consumers (with that number growing every year).

The question is, how do you pick the best supplement option for you and your family? Some people may see a quirky commercial and gravitate toward that product, but that’s probably not the best option in terms of quality and efficacy.

How To Keep Up Your Exercise During The Fall Months

The fall season brings along with it beautiful scenery with the changing colors of the leaves out in nature, but with this also comes cooler temperatures and less daylight hours.

A byproduct of the cooler temperatures and less daylight is less exercise as well, as the motivation to get up and move goes down when the conditions aren’t anywhere near as comfortable as they were a month or two ago.

Still, the importance of staying committed to getting some exercise in each day can’t be understated,



The Surprising Link Between Your Gut and Mental Health

When “Mental Health” is mentioned, it is common for many people to think solely of the brain as opposed to the body as a whole. Unfortunately, a huge misconception when mental health issues arise with someone is that it’s “all in their head.”

That’s simply not the case.

Our body is a magnificent machine, and while the brain is considered the powerhouse of the body, it takes everything inside us working together to keep us going. And that means that our mental health is determined by a lot more than just the brain.

Probiotics Are Good For Your Mental Health

Probiotics are something that most people are aware of, yet not many people take them on a regular basis. A recent study found that two in three people know what probiotics are, but only one in three actively try to consume them.

This is likely due to a variety of factors, with the most prominent reason being many people don’t really think they need probiotics unless they’re taking antibiotics, as the antibiotics kill not only the bad bacteria in the gut,



Give Your Immune System A Much Needed Boost This Fall

Fall is officially here, bringing along with it the changing of the leaves on the trees along with some extreme temperature shifts from time to time. And although a mid-60s afternoon cooling off into the 30s at night might be pleasant for some people, it can also have some negative effects on our body and overall health.

Additionally, as winter gets closer and closer, the cooler temperatures and shorter days cause an increase in the time that many people spend indoors.



Size Matters: Why Your Standard Multivitamin Isn’t Working

One of the most common questions that continues to be asked surrounding vitamins and other supplements is whether or not your body is actually absorbing what you put in it, or whether it’s simply being passed through as waste with little to no benefit.

The answer to that question depends on the supplement, though.

“If you’re not taking supplements or having certain foods in the forms they need to be consumed in, you’re really wasting your time.” –



5 Ways to Help Yourself When You’re Feeling Lonely

Loneliness is on the rise, as a recent Cigna survey found that three in five adults report that they sometimes or always feel lonely. That number bumps up to nearly 75% among workers aged 18-22 as well, an age group that has seen rates rise steadily over the past few years.

With summer officially coming to an end this week as well, ushering in the fall season, it’s also that time of year when loneliness naturally increases.

It’s important to acknowledge these increased rates of loneliness,



Using A New “F Word” To Help With Stress: Forgiveness

A somewhat shocking statistic regarding stress was recently observed by the American Psychological Association, which found that 84% of Americans believe that the United States has “serious societal issues” that need to be addressed immediately.

These societal issues come from all over: from extreme division because of difference of opinions, to concerns about the economy and jobs, to lingering concerns about the pandemic. Everything around us can be a stress-inducing item.

Nearly half of U.S. adults believe that planning for their future seems “impossible.”

A recent Gallup poll found that employee stress is at an all-time high.
