Check these out, too...
Kindr, now available on iOS and coming soon to Android, is
all about spreading joy. The app allows you to send creative compliments, like “You’re
so well dressed even Barney Stinson could ask for style tips,” to everyone you
know. It also provides a good news feed with inspiring acts of kindness. You
can even keep track of your goodness thanks to their point system, which rewards
you based on each compliment you send and lets you get into a “kindness
competition” with your buddies.
Why is all of this so great? Because research has shown that
being nice to others doesn’t just make them feel good; it makes you feel good,
too. And the more compassionate you are, the more you want to be compassionate. Plus, it’s contagious. You being nice to
one person inspires them to be nice to someone else. That’s a pretty awesome
snowball effect if you ask us.
