On this Thanksgiving, it’s a great time to consider performing random acts of kindness for others. The benefits of your generosity don’t just help your recipient. It can help you and your health. Studies have shown that being kind to others improves cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, decreases pain, and boosts happiness. On this often hectic holiday, remember to do simple things for others, like allowing a car to merge into your lane during heavy traffic or overtipping your waiter or waitress.
