Being nice is good for us

Being nice is good for us

Stephen Post is (Professor of Bioethics & Family Medicine in the School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University) and has established ‘The Institute for Unlimited Love’ which sounds very cool.

Stephen tells us that we gain health happiness and longevity when we contribute to those around us. He tells of a study which started with people in their teens which extended into their nineties. (Well only for some of course). Those who identified as having an altruistic approach to the world, had protection in terms of stuff like depression and anxiety, as well as physical stuff like cardiovascular diseases. This all sounds good and encouraging. And inspiring. And so here is a chance for you…when next you see me…be nice. It will be good for you. It really is encouraging isn’t it!
