Hi, I’m Lili, founder and creator of LSW Mind Cards. I spent a decade forging a successful career in the Film and TV industry but despite the occasional red carpet glamour and glitzy parties I never felt truly fulfilled. I was overworked and surrounded by people suffering from burn out and high stress. I realised that despite originally believing working in film was my dream, it wasn’t making me happy, so I took the plunge and retrained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner. Through my ever-growing interest in positive psychology and my work with my clients, I have noticed the profound effect our daily habits have on our emotional wellbeing. It is not the grand gestures which bring us happiness but the small, easy to do actions we make each day which builds up over time, and so the idea for LSW Mind Cards was born. I wanted to make the secret to happiness more accessible to everyone in the most simple way! I hope you love using the cards as much as I loved creating them and that they bring joy and fulfilment into your life.
Kindness: the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.
We all appreciate people showing us kindness. The warm feeling when someone holds the door open for you or offers you their seat on a busy bus. But did you know that it’s not just the receiver of kindness that benefits from it? Research has shown that giving kindness to others, rather than to yourself can cause lasting wellbeing. Kindness triggers the same physiological changes in the brain that are associated with happiness. Acts of kindness can help with self esteem, improved mood and long lasting wellbeing.
What are the benefits?
Kindness stimulates the production of serotonin which benefits your health, keeps you calm, reduces stress and anxiety and makes you happy. Research has also shown people to feel stronger and more energetic after helping others. If this all wasn’t enough, kindness can help people to live longer. Altruism produces oxytocin, known as the ‘cardioprotective’ hormone which reduces blood pressure. It can also help to build up strong networks of friends and family which has been found to reduce your risk of heart disease.
How do I do it?
Being kind doesn’t need to cost you anything. Try a supportive smile to a stranger on the street. Compliment a colleague on their wor. Phone an elderly relative for a catch-up. LSW Mind Cards has an entire category dedicated to kindness with lots of ideas to get you started. Start building them into your daily behaviours and notice how much positive your outlook becomes.
