​"They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." ~ Buck Brannam

​The need to feel loved and cared for is deeply rooted inside us. Being loved and feeling loved is what drives us

Life is easier when we feel loved.

Our survival depends on us finding a good partner; bonding and raising offspring.

Feeling cared for and caring for others increases positive emotions and promotes resilience.

Even thinking or remembering a caring act can make us feel better. Witnessing a caring act by another person increases our positive emotions.

Teachers who care about students happiness and well-being outside the classroom get better results, more engagement and more highly motivated students.

Have you taken some time today to positively impact the life of another?

Smile, write a thank you note, compliment someone, cook a meal for a friend, send a thinking of you text, connect.  Be honest. Ask how their day went, lend a book, call a mate, drop in with a beer.
