This month on Headspace, we’ve been encouraging you to take on 100 Kinds of Kindness, so this week on Radio Headspace, it felt like it was time to practice what we preached.
Along with the help of the wonderful Shannon and Will, who both work at Headspace on either side of the Atlantic, and Corey, who has been a guest on Radio Headspace before, and who I subsequently managed to rope into this, the four of us set out to each put 25 acts of kindness out into the world in one week, with the aim of reaching 100 kinds of kindness between us.
It was something of a tall order, but I compiled a list of suggestions (with some help from the internet) to get us started. It included things like:
But are we born inherently kind? Does it make a difference if we feel close to our communities? Dr Claudia Aguirre returned to Radio Headspace this week to explain kindness and the brain.
So how many did we get through? Listen and find out on iTunes or through the player above.
