How Kindness Boosts Health. Waiting for a Sign.

Good Life Riff: Ever hear the story about the guy trapped on his roof in a flood, waiting for a sign from God that he’d be saved? Well, turns out, a lot of us live our lives in a similar way. Waiting for someone or something to give us a sign, to tell us, “it’s time.” When, in reality, we are that sign. That’s what today’s riff is about.

Good Life Science: And, in our Good Life Science segment, we’re diving into a fascinating new study on how one very specific type of kindness actually changes us on the level of DNA and makes our lives healthier and, very likely, happier. And, as always, for those want to go to the source, here’s a link to the full study.
