The holiday season is filled with traditions, family & friends, gifts, food, traveling and so much more. It is a time when we all start thinking about each other and how we are going to spread cheer to our family, friends, and community. Spreading cheer doesn't just have to be about gifts. It's about connecting with others, sparking kindness in one another, spreading joy, and remembering compassion towards others.
We know from research that kindness has all kinds of benefits. When we are kind to others, it sends ripples of goodness through the community that ultimately circles back to us. Even the smallest acts of kindness can make a difference.
