There’s a saying that kindness is a virtue — which means that communities and people place a high value on those who practice kindness in everyday life.
But did you know that just by doing the right thing, you are Growing Bolder? That you’re setting yourself up for a healthier, happier and longer life?
We’ve interviewed some of the world’s oldest people, including centenarians and super-centenarians, and across the board, they tell us that staying active and engaged in the world, through friendships and romantic relationships, is the key to longevity. The moment you become isolated or lonely is the moment you start the descent into growing older, not Growing Bolder.
And so much of that is based on kindness — toward ourselves and others.
(You can read much more in Marc Middleton’s book Rock Stars of Aging, which we send as a free gift when you become a Growing Bolder Insider!)
Acts-Retirement Life Communities offers has kindness built into its entire mission statement, and says that having something to get excited about each and every day is a crucial piece of the puzzle.

Acts Retirement Communities is a great example. Acts has 21 communities, all of which are based on the idea that “Loving-Kindness” is the key. Everyone who calls Acts home can continue Growing Bolder, while feeling protected physically, financially and spiritually.
Acts knows that the rest of your life can be the best of your life.
