Wellbeing tip – The kindness of strangers


The word ‘stranger’ and how we should behave around one is mentioned in various religious texts. However, in our society we are brought up to be wary of them.

We will all, at one time or another, have been in a situation where we have been the stranger; for example when we start a new job, move into a new house, travel on business or leisure. We may even have felt like a stranger amongst those we know after a life-changing experience such as bereavement. The value of remembering that such experiences make us more human and compassionate is vital to our wellbeing.

Our wellbeing tip is to rekindle positive memories of others reaching out to you and remembering that when you return the favour to others, it will not just be them who benefit – you will too.
