    Ambassador for Kindness

    by Ngozi Osuagwu, MD | February 27th, 2022

    Ambassador for Kindness

    With all the bad things happening around the world, you can sometimes overlook some positive things. I learned about Time Magazine 2021 Kid of the Year, Orion Jean. He is an 11-year old who sees himself as an ambassador for kindness. His simple message is, “If you see a problem, fix it.”It was very inspiring to read about him. He started an initiative called a race to kindness. In his interview with Angelina Jolie for the article, he says that a race to kindness is a call to action. Kindness is a choice, and while you can’t force others to be kind, we can be kind ourselves and hope to inspire others.

    I also found out that February 17th was National Random Acts of Kindness Day. I did not realize that there was an actual day dedicated to kindness. Should we not strive to be kind every day? There are health benefits to being kind. Kindness stimulates chemicals in your brain like oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins. Oxytocin is the “love hormone” which aids in lowering blood pressure and increases self-esteem and optimism. Serotonin is excellent at making you happy and calming you down. Endorphins help with promoting energy. Kindness decreases pain, stress, anxiety, and depression. Please click here for additional kindness health facts.

    I believe there is room for more ambassadors for kindness. Each one of us can be an ambassador. The world needs us. Our community needs us. We need us. Imagine a better world.
