KARMiC provides inspirational stories, quotes and suggestions for daily good deeds. It’s inspired by the idea of karma. When our actions cause someone to feel happy and healthy, the result of such acts causes us to feel the same. By doing a good deed a day you’ll notice every day that what you do comes back to you.
Do Good To Feel Good
There was a time in my life when almost every task seemed difficult, exhausting and beyond my capacity to complete. I slowly began to realize that the one thing that helped me feel better, the one thing that continued to feel effortless and worthwhile, was to help somebody else. When I reached out to help someone, we both rose up. I know first hand that the best way you can instantly help yourself feel happy and energized is to be kind and helpful to the people you encounter during your day, every day.
It’s Cool To Be Kind
Medical science has proven that even the simple act of smiling can relax the muscles in your face and body, lower blood pressure and reduce stress. When you’re kind to someone, your smile alone will improve your mood, lower your heart rate and help you feel better too. KARMiC provides easy actions you can take to improve your everyday wellbeing through acts of kindness. How cool is that!
Stay Mindful. Be Kindful.
I teach that Kindfulness is Mindfulness in action. KARMiC will help you channel your awareness of self and others as you go about your day. It will give you the pat on the back you deserve for being your best self. It will remind you that you already help people in many ways, every day, and reinforce that little gestures are what truly make up the fabric of kindness.
I spent 30 years in the competitive and fast-paced world of advertising where the sometimes, emotionally neglectful behaviors of this dog-eat-dog world were expected and even respected. I left feeling like I could have done better – like I could have been more understanding, cooperative and compassionate, while still being a boss able to run a successful company.
Now I teach marketing, branding and advertising at Parsons School of Design, part of The New School and lecture on the topic to other colleges, corporations and organizations. My love for branding, graphic design, and communications is now channeled into KARMiC, blending my love for this business with my love for people.
A Deed A Day Is All It Takes
Come with me on my KARMiC journey and let’s make everyday-positive-interaction a way of life and the ultimate symbol of style and substance. The KARMiC journey has no destination but is a continual path of practice. I will regularly share with you what I learn about kindfulness as a way of life, introduce you to people I meet along the way and update you on what kindness looks like based on good deeds the KARMiC community is completing on the KARMiC app.
When you put your self-awareness to use through feelings of positive engagement, everyone you touch will receive exponential uplift. It’s time to get KARMiC.
