There are really exciting things happening in the world of kindness research. UCLA recently established the Bedari Kindness Institute, where experts will work on promoting a more humane world and exploring how and why being nice to others reduces depression and the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

In this episode of The Kindness Podcast, Nicole talks to Darnell Hunt, who is the Dean of Social Sciences at UCLA and Dan Fessler, the inaugural director, about what might motivate us to be kind. Download the UCLA Mindful app to take advantage of the work being done at the institute.
