NPR has offered some tips for teaching kids to be more kind. The thing is, they also apply to adults.

- Teach real apologies, and frame forgiveness as a gift you give yourself.
- Practice gratitude to “raise the capital” of everyday kindness.
We recognize the health benefits of exercising our bodies and of eating a more healthy diet. What benefits might there be for us individually and as a society if we learned to apologize with sincerity and to practice gratitude?
