Be An Angel Day

Today, Friday, August 22nd is Be An Angel Day.  It's all about doing simple acts of kindness for others.  Offering care and support to those in need, by lending a helping hand.  The idea of putting others before yourself and making the world a better place and brightening someone else's day.

Neill Public Library has interesting reads connected to Be An Angel Day.  Try One Simple Act: Discovering the Power of Generosity by Debbie Macomber or Heroes Among Us: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Choices by John Quinones or if you prefer fiction try RaeAnne Thayne's - Hope's Crossing series (available in e-book format) or the children's book Fly Free by Roseanne Thong.

Whatever you do, Be An Angel Today and you will not only help someone else, but you will be helping yourself too! Scientific studies show that random acts of kindness help to reduce stress levels and lower blood pressure and heart rate.  They also balance the cortisol levels increasing energy and inner joy, allowing us to live happier and healthier lives.  So go out and make someone's day today, and Be An Angel!
