The December Character Words of the Month are KINDNESS and GENEROSITY in honor of the holiday season. These traits are important all year round too! See attached slide for definitions. Also attached are 2x short videos – the first video is about the Science of Kindness and how doing nice things (even just a smile) improves the health of others and yourself. The second video is about Random Acts of Kindness and Paying it Forward. This means doing little things like opening the door for someone, helping an elderly person carry a grocery bag, picking up a piece of litter, giving a friend or stranger a compliment, etc. These acts don’t have to change the world, but each small act adds up over time. And more importantly, when someone does something nice for us, we need to “pay it forward” by doing something nice for someone else. This is how we make the world a better place!
