Mental health is always a very important topic of discussion and Mental Health Awareness Week is a fantastic way of bringing this to people’s attention. This year’s focus is all about kindness. How can a simple act of kindness have a positive impact in both your personal and professional life?
In a professional capacity, kindness goes a long way! Complimenting someone on your team on a project they’ve completed or a sale they’ve made can really help to boost their morale and confidence – and this level of positivity reaches the whole team too!
Kindness is Contagious
An act of compassion works wonders for our wellbeing and mind frame. If someone does something nice for you, you are more likely to spread that kindness to others – a win-win situation.
Increased Energy Levels
Acts of kindness release a hormone called serotonin. This can help you to feel calm and even build your confidence and self-esteem. These are all qualities that can help you thrive in the workplace.
Kindness is Motivating
You can feel rejuvenated to tackle challenging parts of your job or tasks from everyday life after colleagues, friends or family have given you encouragement. This boost in morale can really motivate you to push boundaries.
Is Kindness the Key to Success?
Successful professionals have shown that building a fantastic culture within a business, built on trust, kindness and integrity, creates a strong team of employees that strive to do their best.
