IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE...
… the conversation centers on what kindness is, how to practice it, and why it matters. Kindness is a powerful tool – it helps people feel less alone and truly makes the world a more joyful and tolerant place. The two insightful guests you’ll hear from in this episode – Jamil Zaki, Ph.D., and Leon Logothetis – will leave you feeling lighter, more optimistic and, well, kinder!
Jamil Zaki, Ph.D., uses tools from psychology and neuroscience to help you understand how empathy works. As a professor of Psychology at Stanford University and the director of the Stanford Social Neuroscience Lab, he explains how kindness is a learnable skill. You can use it in your life more often.
Jamil’s kindness research includes empathy and compassion to form a triad. “Kindness is a behavior that benefits another person,” he explains. Scientists view empathy like a big umbrella term for emotional connection and then compassion as one of the components of emotional connectedness to others.
You can dive into more of his research in his book, “The War for Kindness: Building Empathy in a Fractured World.”
Leon Logothetis invites you to join the kindness rebellion. He’s certain you’ll find wealth in health and happiness, success in inner peace and a definite cool factor in being kind.
Leon’s a motivational speaker, adventurer and philanthropist known as the “The Kindness Guy.” His travels take him all over the world looking for and spreading kindness (binge watch both seasons of “The Kindness Diaries”). He speaks to children and adults at schools and companies about the importance of being kind in the world. Empathy and compassion have a lot to do with that.
Check out his latest book: “Go Be Kind-A Life-Changing Little Journal: 28½ Adventures Guaranteed to Make You Happier,” to find out how you can get in on the kindness movement.
