Daily Inspiration: The Science of Kindness

After posting inspiration and motivation videos,  meditation and yoga, as well as posts about non-profits, I realized people may be wondering why a nutritionist would focus so much on inspiring people. Shouldn’t I just stick to food and talking about food?

My blog is about more than just food. As my motto says “FOOD TO HEAL THE BODY, MIND AND SOUL.” Inspiring you heals your soul. Meditation and yoga help with stress relief. Telling you about non-profits, helps inspire you to be kind.

Wait, what? How does being kind have anything to do with healing the body, mind and soul? Well, it ABSOLUTELY helps you heal your soul, that’s a given. But what if I told you that there is actual science behind kindness…Science that proves being kind helps the body and mind as well?! Here is a short 2:00 video from LIFE VEST INSIDE, explaining the science behind kindness. ENJOY!!


About Tamara Hoerner (1261 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
