How Paying It Forward May Actually Make You Healthier
While it may seem a bit daunting to figure out how to incorporate more volunteer work and/or donations into our lives, there are very simple ways to pay it forward that don't require much time (or money) at all. In fact, we've put together a list of super simple ways you can pay it forward below (with some acts taking less than 5 minutes and $5).

Paying It Forward
Baby Boomers Have a "Deep-Seated Desire to Make a Difference."
The idea and practice of paying it forward recognizes the boomerang-like good karma associated with helping others if one can. Giving back is already becoming a principal activity among boomers, specifically some form of passing on what one has learned in life so far. Offering expertise in a particular area to a younger generation or others in need can be an immensely rewarding experience, which can lead to a feeling of completion or coming full circle. Paying it forward will become much more structured and organized in the years ahead, I foresee, with millions of boomers to soon be looking for a new mission in life offering meaning and purpose.

Random Acts of Kindness During the Coronavirus Outbreak
One thing that we have seen all over the world is that kindness is prevailing in uncertain times. People are coming together to sing on balconies in Italy, others are setting up groups to offer support to the elderly or vulnerable - like collecting groceries or calling them for a chat. We have heard stories of people having virtual movie nights and creating choreographed dances over video chat to share with the world.
