Kindness has the exponential power to transform how we think, feel,
and behave in the world. We all possess a compassionate instinct.
It’s part of our genetic blueprint and essential to our happiness. Yet
we’re exposed to an unrelenting stream of narcissism, intolerance,
and cruelty—and we experience this epidemic on a daily basis in our
workplaces, schools, neighborhoods, and social networks.
The Kindness Cure draws on groundbreaking research in psychology
and neuroscience to show how simple acts of kindness—for
ourselves, for others, and for our world—can dissolve feelings of fear
and apathy, and open us up to a life of profound joy. With this book,
you’ll discover ways to liberate your innate capacity for kindness and
kindle it in others. Because when you make kindness a daily habit,
it radiates from the inside out. It’s contagious. And the mutual care,
comfort, and safety that result are our most powerful force for change.
