WELCOME TO THE KINDNESS CLUB PAGE!
If you want to leave a meaningful impact on your community and the world, Kindness Club is for you. We spend our meetings by doing hands-on community service to help those in need and also working to organize large-scale community service projects that even more people can partake in. Follow us on Instagram to see some of the ways we’re spreading kindness right now!
You are not alone, support is available.

Ways to Practice Gratitude
Some other ways to de-stress
Get out a journal and just journal or draw whatever you think of, even if it’s messy. Journaling can help you “reduce stress” (source). Furthermore, “the creation of art can provide… a distraction from stressful thoughts and experiences…” (source). Going outside and spending time in nature can also help with your well-being (source).
For more resources, check out the sources that are used throughout this webpage– many include more information on wellness practices, in addition to research. You can also take a look at the Greater Good Science Center website from UC Berkeley for more research-based wellness practices (Ms. Lesser’s recommendation!).
Kindness Club was pleased to invite Sarah Meyer Tapia to speak with Kehillah students
