Why Kindness matters
- increases feelings of contentment and belonging
- increases confidence and boosts one’s immune system
- decreases stress, anxiety and depression
- benefits the give, receiver and observer
Kindness Recycled was inspired by the Magic 5:1 Relationship Ratio developed by Dr. Gottman and Robert Levenson. For the purpose of this movement, it takes 5 kind words or acts to counteract the effects of just 1 negative word or act.
Create your own Kindness Recycled Bracelet by integrating 6 pack plastic ring holders and the Magic 5:1 Relationship Ratio into your design. Share your design with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spread kindness in your home, at your school and in your community. Remember to use the beads on your bracelet to track your kind acts and after you’ve achieved all 5, recycle the kindness by giving the bracelet to someone else.
Amplify your kindness by sharing your kinds acts or words to our website and encourage others to join the Kindness Recycled Movement. Organizations with the most registered kind acts will be featured on our website as ourKindness Ambassadors this Word Kindness Day, November 13, 2018.
