If that isn’t incentive enough, If I told you that good deeds can scientifically make us look years younger, would you believe me? I didn’t believe it either, but it’s true! Research shows that while performing acts of kindness, our bodies release “oxytocin” (coined the ‘love hormone’) which generates a stronger blood flow, stable heartbeat and makes us feel overall healthier and energized. The stimulated blood flow brings color to our cheeks and fills in our ‘worry lines’, making us look years younger.
Performing acts of kindness may seem overwhelming, time consuming and at times expensive, but they don’t have to be. A simplest gesture can be calling a friend and asking how they are doing, helping someone load a heavy bag of groceries into their car, or secretly sponsoring a cup of coffee for the person behind you in line. These little acts make such a powerful and lasting difference in the society we live in. They not only touch the heart of the receiver, but they also significantly rejuvenate the giver.
Illustrating these crucial values, is our 925 Sterling Silver ‘Infinity Necklace & Earrings Set’, represented in our May Monthly Special Value (NOW $69.99 for the matching set). The intricately detailed hammered center and beaded border on our necklace and ‘Shepherd Hook’ earring charms, make our infinity symbol a real stand out amongst others like it. Purchase this thoughtful gift for you or your loved ones, and receive it with an eco-friendly dust bag and a chic black box for a classy touch.
For me, these cherished treasures serve as constant reminders to be kind to others and inspire them to pay the gesture forward. Let’s break out of our ‘comfort zone’ and go out into society with a kind smile and a giving heart. A little act of kindness goes a long way, and its impact... infinite.
