Publisher's Summary

Through 70 efficient and inspiring affirmations that promote kindness and some simple tips on using them, your journey toward inner peace and happiness will begin.

This quick-listen book is here to help you get started on that path. It is a beginner's guide to the effect of kindness and affirmations.

These make up most of this audiobook and are divided into five affirmations per day, each repeated 10 times, for 14 days. Discover the power of kindness and see the transformation of the way the world responds to you and what you attract.

The power of kindness

Kindness and happiness are directly related. Acts of kindness are influential and cause the release of various neurotransmitters in your brain that promote feelings of satisfaction and well-being, stimulate healing, and reduce pain. Compassion also stimulates the release of a hormone called oxytocin.

"Research has shown that a simple act of kindness directed toward another improves the functioning of the immune system and stimulates the production of serotonin in both the recipient of the kindness and the person extending the kindness. Kindness extended, received, or observed beneficially impacts the physical health and feelings of everyone involved." (Wayne Dyer)

The power of positive affirmations

Affirmations are one of the most efficient self-healing tools available. The law of attraction is a belief system that we attract what we are - like attracts like. The key is the ability of affirmations to intercept negative and faulty thought patterns. Backed by scientific findings called neuroplasticity, it is possible to rewire it for a more positive experience of yourself and your life. When you change, the world changes for you.

Begin listening now, and start your journey to a happier, healthier you.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Daily reminder to practice kindness

I really enjoyed how the author incorporated kindness and affirmations. Kindness is so powerful and overlooked in all the other books on affirmations. This quickly has become one of my favorite things to listen to every morning. I also really enjoyed the narrator's voice.

Love it.

First of all, I love affirmations. I love this book even more because it is different than other affirmations books. It doesn't just say the affirmation and move on. It brings you closer to that affirmation and writes it into your mind. I love it. Thanks

Life is always better with kindness

I am a personal fan of kindness and have seen the power of kindness and love create magic in my life. The title of this audio piqued my curiousity, so I had to give it a listen. I am so glad I did. If everyone on the planet would listen to this and do the daily affirmations, the world would be a much kinder, and happier place. I highly recommend for anyone wanting to be the change they want to see in the world.

How Can We Get Everyone On The Planet To Do This?

This book has some very powerful information that could really make a huge impact, if you're willing to listen - and then practice - and then share. Easy read and loved the additional bonus affirmations. I this think would pair nicely with mirror meditation. Definitely recommend to the everyone!

Powerful

We all are raised to understand the power of our words, but sometimes we let our emotions and frustrations have the best of us and aren't always using the "kindness" we all have in us. I absolutely loved these affirmations! Not only do they just give you an affirmation and move on but they really help you soak it up. understanding why you should be kind and how to pull that out of yourself for daily and constant use is very important and I think everyone everywhere should listen to this book. Kindness is needed and it starts with you!

Such beautiful affirmations

I have enjoyed listening to these affirmations just as much as my daughter has. I got this originally for my daughter. She's already compassionate and kind, however, this felt like a good tool to put in place since she will be heading back to school soon. Affirmations are such a great tool to utilize when trying to build strength in an area of life. Can't go wrong with this one!

A great way to begin my day

Listening to this book reinvigorated the man I want to be. I start my mornings listening to the affirmations which give me a positive charge for the day. It helps with my critical thinking and difficult situations. Everyone should have this book. The world would be a kinder place. We all need a little reminder to be kind to others.

Who you truly are

This was such an inspirational audiobook. The biggest takeaway was to allow kindness in your heart for those who had hurt you in the past. I have felt much more positive since following the 14 day programme. It has made such a difference to think with a kindness mindset.

Inspiring!

The way the wolrd began to change when I started listening to these affirmations was inspiring. The feeling of kindness is so powerful in changing your view on the world. I really liked the way this audiobook didn't just spit out random affirmations but it had structure and repetition. Highly recommend!

powerful!

I am a kind person...when it comes to others however I find it difficult to be kind to myself often.
I found the affirmations really helpful as a reminder to be kind to myself as I am to others.

I have already started the affirmations routine and they get to easier to practise as the days go by.

If you need to learn how and why to kind to yourself and others then this book is for you.

Science behind kindness

I really enjoyed the science behind acts of kindness and learning about the hormones that are triggered when you are kind. The affirmations are a bonus.

I like how the book is broken down making it easy to find the day you need.

Heart is exploding with joy

I am almost in tears at how joyful I feel finally. I used to be so closed off from years of abuse. This book has played a key role in my transformation. I would still be lost without it. For once I feel happy. My heart almost hurts from all the love. I sound it sounds strange but when you go from lost to finding a book this life changing, then you don't feel the same anymore. I don't care what people think of me. I am insanely proud of myself.

Life changing science of kindness

I love my science but I never expected to hear that there is science behind kindness. We all talk about it as if it's something just nice to do but I have never heard the why of this from a science base - I didn’t even know it existed. For me, understanding it like this makes me realized how real it is and how real the benefit is - and not just to others but to ourselves. And that kindness to ourselves is a part of why affirmations work. This too was an unexpected approach and yet so obvious. It’s the first time I heard myself saying…hurry up with the affirmations! And they were very different too! There is nothing expected about this book and it's all the better for it. You will know for sure that kindness works and why affirmations work and so this is a book listening experience that I won’t ever forget.
