Three practices can help rewire your brain to be kinder and may even benefit your health. First, practice loving-kindness meditation (LKM) for 10 minutes a day. Focus kind and loving thoughts toward someone. One study showed a 10-minute session increased feelings of social connection and positive feelings toward others. Other documented benefits include reduced pain, tension and depression. Second, set a goal to act kinder to others; perform daily acts of kindness. Third, focus on gratitude; rehearse the things you are grateful for, perhaps keep a gratitude journal. Studies show this can help improve sleep and lessen fatigue and depression.
