The Kid Should See This

Where does compassion come from?

Where Does Compassion Really Come From? And how can our everyday interactions and experiences change for us and others when we practice being more mindful with our attention? This promo video about compassion for mental health company Happify explores these questions with animation by Katy Davis of Bristol-based studio SuperDoodle.

The animation’s takeaway: “Compassion is a trait that can be learned. Sometimes, all it takes is truly paying attention to the people around us.”
