*** A Year of Kindness is a guided journal *** Spend a year doing something kind every day and something magical happens -- you become happier, kinder, more grateful, and your life is imbued with meaning. Dr. Pamela Paresky created A Year of Kindness as a simple guide to light the way. After a year of doing something kind each day and keeping a journal to focus your attention on kindness and gratitude, you will never be the same. Nor will the recipients of your acts of kindness. Dr. Paresky provides empirical evidence that journaling about kindness and gratitude leads to being happier and more fulfilled. With quotes from eminent thinkers and people who lead meaningful lives to remind us how by maintaining a focus on kindness and gratitude, any 365 days are transformed into A Year of Kindness. "Dr. Paresky has astutely determined that if we take a year to focus on something outside ourselves and resolve to do something kind each day, we will never go back. Her journal is ideal for both adults and young people in setting us all on a path of conscious concern for others, and creating a lifelong habit of doing good." - Elayne Bennett, Adolescent Development Expert and Founder of Best Friends Foundation "What a marvelous gift to have a program like this to help us stay focused on the simple and indispensable need of all human societies: kindness." - Mickey Edwards, The Aspen Institute
