About the Book

Kindness is something we all have to give and that we all need, regardless of status or background.

The current global effort to protect our communities’ most vulnerable people shows how kindness spreads and that when we are kind to others it lifts our spirits. In The Kindness Journal, Jaime Thurston, founder of the charity 52 Lives, will motivate and inspire you to practice kindness as much for your own wellbeing as for the wellbeing of others.

The book will help you to cultivate kindness habits, with simple exercises that make a positive impact on others and yourself, and provides a place for you to acknowledge and remind yourself how being kind to others makes you feel. Through prompts suggesting simple actions, inspirational quotes and scientifically supported facts, you will learn of the positive effect kindness has on our physical and mental health.

52 Lives is a registered charity that has been changing a life every week since 2013, with the support of almost 100,000 strangers who work collectively to help a person in need of some kindness. Through the charity, Jaime sees first-hand the impact kindness has, not only on those we are kind to, but on us when we are kind.
