It’s Friday. It’s Bacchus! It’s Fun!
You’re a fan of Bacchus. You practice random acts of kindness in your everyday life! Have you ever stopped and considered the effects?
It can brighten strangers’ days
A random act of kindness can make a much stronger impact than you might think. Your choice to hold a door open for a stranger or return a missing wallet may be the one positive thing to happen to the recipient that day. For all we know, that person may have been feeling lonelier than ever, or losing faith in the goodness of the world. A small positive act on your part may change that person’s worldview, and that’s pretty powerful.
Helping others makes you feel happy too
Research has repeatedly found that helping others helps you, too. Giving back or doing a good deed lights up your brain’s pleasure center and can prompt a rush of feel-good chemicals. Scientists aren’t sure why kindness feels so good, but it’s been theorized that the need to help others is something prehistoric humans developed to ensure the survival of their social group. Helping others is part of the very essence of who we are!
It reminds us how much good we can do
Doing a small good deed is a great way to remind ourselves that we can make a difference. It’s easy to feel helpless in the face of the world’s many troubles, but every single one of us can make at least a small impact on someone else’s life. That’s an incredible feeling.
Practice a random act today! Come to Bacchus for $6 Absolut cocktails, JackBox games, video DJ Matt and more!
We leave you with this trivial quote from author Roald Dahl:
Dahl: I think probably kindness is my number one attribute in a human being. I’ll put it before any of the things like courage or bravery or generosity or anything else.
Interviewer: Or brains even?
Dahl: Oh gosh, yes, brains is one of the least. You can be a lovely person without brains, absolutely lovely. Kindness - that simple word. To be kind - it covers everything, to my mind. If you’re kind that’s it!
