Kindness is Good Medicine for All of Us

Jun 16 2022

Have you ever been having a difficult day, and a small moment of kindness lifted your spirits?

Kindness and patience are powerful gifts for us to share. They’re free, and they go far in helping ease someone’s worries, temper their anger or even boost their energy.

The events of the last two years – in addition to the recent events across our country, including the fatal shooting at a Tulsa, Okla. medical building – have taken a physical and emotional toll on our caregivers.

Whether you’re a parent, nurse, teacher, delivery driver, retiree, emergency worker, retail worker, etc., we’re each doing the best we can under difficult circumstances.

Right now, during what continues to be an exhausting and daunting time for health care workers, please consider giving them the gifts of patience and kindness. Helping people feels good – for both them, and you!

And even a small act of kindness can have ripple effects that help make the world a happier place for all of us.

Visit the Mercy Health website to learn more about our ministry, and what we’re doing to keep our patients, team members and communities safe.

The nurses and health care providers when I was in the hospital at St Vs nov 29-Dec2 Positive COVID were beyond amazing! They were at times obviously totally exhausted, but did not show it. They cared for me like family and were always ready when I needed something. Stevie, Latitta(I hope) Gayle, Mary, and all others who were in my room, Dr Andrew, GOD BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU❤️

Kindness is one of the rare acts that benefit ourselves and others simultaneously. As we build better relationships, a better community, and a better world, we’ll be building a happier, healthier self inside and out
