The lessons our grandma’s spent time imparting to us about kindness and writing notes are on point with a new study revealing there are some surprisingly simple and inexpensive ways to improve our well-being! On Go! GC we cover it all when it comes to well-being; healthy recipes, fitness tips, scholarly articles to educate, motivational stories, mindfulness techniques, even how much sleep to get! We are giving away thousands of dollars worth of prizes (most supporting local business) to encourage folks to stick with it. Keep trying, find balance, make fitness a priority, and it just keeps going. We have more people reading these posts than ever, our traffic is high and our data from the surveys you fill out tell us people are benefiting. That’s all wonderful news, but for many, there is still a very real struggle with loneliness. Our mental health is at a crisis point and it’s harder than ever to get help. There are so many hurtful fingers to point to and negative things to say.
Today, the challenge is REFRAIN, stop yourself from saying that mean comment intended to hurt. If by chance it makes it out of your mouth and into someone else’s ears- be quick to say you’re sorry! Show kindness today in thought, word, and deed.
The research study showed that acts of kindness improved well-being and contributed to decreased levels of loneliness and enhanced positive moods! Click here to read the full study:
Do we really need a research study to tell us that kindness matters? Of course not, but we may need simple reminders and a little nudge every once in a while to take a few minutes and write a note to someone! The benefits are not lost on you and make our home just a little bit better!
Join the discussion! Who showed kindness to you this week and how did it make you feel? How will you show kindness to someone today? (and you’ll even earn 5 bonus points each day, if you are logged into your Go! account and share).

Great information! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the info and also the way to earn nice gifts. I really like what I recently used my points on. Thanks!
Nice to know that note writing & calling a friend hasn’t changed. Always good for all involved.
Very good and so true. With tensions so high over COVID, I see so much discord in our world. Thank you for the reminder to be kind and watch our words.
Kindness always matters.
Kindness is so important.
Because nice matters.
Kindness is free to give, but priceless to receive.
Thanks for the reminder to be kind! Kindness really matters!
On a recent trip to Morgantown, the folks in front of us in the Wendy’s drive-through paid for our meals. Random acts of kindness mean so much!
Focusing on others helps heal yourself. It is more blessed to give than to receive.
This is a great reminder. I’m going to write some notes.
Yes. We need to be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another.
