The article name was “Kindness Breeds More Kindness, Study Shows” and was written by Brandon Keim.
Researchers found out that one act of kindness can influence more acts of kindness. They researched this by analyzing cause and effect situations by having a group of “players” spend their 20 credits toward a pool, in which they received credits back in the end. The groups were mixed up and redid the experiment. When one person gave a lot of money, it affected the other people for the next 2 rounds.
The article convinced me to be more kind, because it will affect many people.
I found an article titled “How Random Acts of Kindness Can Benefit Your Health” by Priya Advani. Researchers studied and found that those who were kind become happier over time. This is because doing acts of kindness releases a hormone called oxytocin which reduces blood pressure. I picked this article because I found it interesting that it could actually benefit your health to be kind. I also found out the science of behind being happy. I found this article encouraging, and will make sure to be more kind.
