Simple acts of kindness may be kind to your body!

August 30th, 2011 • Posted by Brandon/ Rebecca Scott • Permalink

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!

I think this simply relefcts the fact that we have not yet evolved as a society to deal with successful women.Traditionally, men have the power and control the resources. In this context, women gain survival advantage largely through men, so women should value social status among men, more than physical attributes. Meanwhile men don't rely on women for survival advantage so they can select based on physical attributes. And so traditionally, men focus energies on gaining status, and women are attracted to high-status men, and women focus their energies on being physically attractive, and men are attracted to beautiful women.The arrangement isn't very good for women, because status-seeking is more personally empowering than beauty-seeking. So movement toward gender equality means women will attempt to compete and attract partners on the same terms as men. Also, status and career have increasingly become conflated with life purpose and personal value, and of course women want to participate in that.But, socially we're still stuck in the traditional values, whereby women seek high-status men. For successful women, they tend to want at least equally successful men. It's very hard to break these tendencies; just like it's very hard for men to see past poor physical attributes and recognize other valuable offerings of some woman. Very successful men are rare; you think very successful women are rare but they are growing in number, all the while successful men are happy to select unsuccessful women as partners, so pickings are slim for successful women. I think these issues are at the root of the tension of finding partners for successful women.
