December 5 and window number 5! The same number of players on a basketball team, today’s kindness is all about making someone beam!
Today, make someone laugh.
They say that one of the greatest gifts of all is the gift of laughter. It might seem a bit difficult to make some people laugh, but that’s exactly why it’s such a kind thing to do, especially if that someone really needs a good laugh. Laughing is a feel good measure because when you laugh your body gets a dose of feel good hormones called endorphins. And that’s also why when you share a good laugh with someone you build new bonds and friendship. So if sometimes you feel like you need to “get it together,” laughter can do that. Literally!
And as you laugh your way to Christmas, don’t forget to share your kindness stories. Sharing kindness builds the kinds of bonds that make the world a happier, healthier place. In fact, it’s an act of kindness in itself just to share your story with us all because just witnessing acts of kindness helps us all grow a sense of community and belonging and … more kindness! So you can share your #AllinAdvent experience with us in all the usual places – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email – and let’s together crowdsource some kindness!
All in Advent! Are you in? Because we are all in! 💖
