Can being kind make you happier? According to New York University professor Dr. Alan Schlechter, who teaches the most popular elective class at NYU called "The Science of Happiness," there’s a simple daily exercise you can do to make you happier: Do five random, conscious acts of kindness a day. These can be as simple as holding a door open for someone or calling to check in on someone. But it has to be five things. “Five random acts of conscious kindness has an enormous impact on somebody versus doing three random acts of kindness, which might be a little too simple, says Schlechter. “… The five really makes you put your mind to it. Because I would bet many of us do something kind on almost any day. But this is about being consciously aware of it, and by making it five, it does feel like a bit more.” (Business Insider)
