The Biology of Kindness: How It Makes Us Happier and Healthier | TIME.com | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

There’s a reason why being kind to others is good for you — and it can now be traced to a specific nerve.

 

When it comes to staying healthy, both physically and mentally, studies consistently show that strong relationships are at least as important as avoiding smoking and obesity. But how does social support translate into physical benefits such as lower blood pressure, healthier weights and other physiological measures of sound health? A new study published in Psychological Science suggests that the link may follow the twisting path of the vagus nerve, which connects social contact to the positive emotions that can flow from interactions.

I think this is true if you do something nice and decent you do feel a bit better about, but if do something a bit mean you feel a lot worse.

» Understanding Invalidation - The Emotionally Sensitive Person | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

Most people would deny that they invalidate the internal experience of others. Very few would purposefully invalidate someone else. But well-intentioned people may be uncomfortable with intense emotions or believe that they are helping when they are actually invalidating.

Tiny Wisdom: Your Pain Is Real | Tiny Buddha: Wisdom Quotes, Letting Go, Letting Happiness In | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it
One of the most frustrating things in the world is feeling something painful and having other people tell you that you shouldn’t be upset.
