The Kindness Journal By Jaime Thurston
Kindness is something we all have to give and we all need, regardless of status or background. The current global effort to protect our communities’ most vulnerable shows how kindness spreads and that when we are kind to others it lifts our spirits. In The Kindness Journal, Jaime Thurston, founder of the charity 52 Lives, motivates and inspires readers to practice kindness as much for their own well-being as for the wellbeing of others.
The book will help readers cultivate kindness habits, with simple exercises that make a positive impact on others and themselves, and provide a place for readers to acknowledge and remind themselves how being kind to others made them feel. Through prompts suggesting simple actions, inspirational quotes, and scientifically supported facts, readers will understand the positive effect kindness has on our physical and mental health.
52 Lives is a registered charity that has been changing a life every week since 2013, with the support of almost 100,000 strangers who work collectively to help a person in need of some kindness. Through the charity, Jaime sees first-hand the impact kindness has, not only on those we are kind to but on us when we are kind.
