It’s “Kind” Of a Big Deal: Mayo Hosts Kickstart Kindness

Mayo Clinic Health System is hosting Kickstart Kindness, a virtual program designed to start a kindness revolution. The program is free and self-guided.

“Kindness has been shown to increase self-esteem, empathy and compassion, and improve mood,” says Steven Siegle, Psy.D., a psychotherapist at Mayo Clinic Health System in Menomonie, Wisconsin. “It can decrease blood pressure, and cortisol, a stress hormone, which directly impacts stress levels. People who give of themselves in a balanced way also tend to be healthier and live longer.”

By simply being kind, and being happier and healthier, participants can initiate a ripple effect that can affect their entire community.

This program is appropriate for all ages. Registration is required and you can LEARN MORE WITH A CLICK HERE.
