Some of the acts of kindness that came out during the study are sharing lunch with classmates, helping out in difficult situations, being a friendly and understanding classmate and such others where children can infuse more positivity in the atmosphere.

Researchers also felt that kindness and positivity in the classroom helped children stay connected and reduced bullying to a great extent.

"The most interesting finding to me is that a simple positive activity can promote positive relationships among peers. I was not completely surprised that students increased in happiness, because we have found the same effects in adults. We show that kindness has some real benefits for the personal happiness of children but also for the classroom community," researchers said.
