Kindness as a path to genuine happiness.
David Fryburg, M.D.
David Fryburg, M.D. is the President and Co-Founder of the non-profit Envision Kindness. The mission of Envision Kindness is to promote kindness, empathy, and compassion, in the pursuit of a happier, healthier, and more connected world. We do so by using the power of image-based stories of kindness to stir the innate predisposition of most people to be kind. Our images are crowd sourced from around the world, illustrating kindness, compassion, and love in a wide variety of forms and interpretations. We then share these images with the broader public. This is a public health approach to promoting kindness in an era in which most people are overwhelmed by a barrage of negative news and other disconnecting content.
One of the challenges of a novel approach like this is establishing its value. Envision’s research has demonstrated that images of kindness and compassion affect people deeply, inspiring happiness, joy, optimism, gratitude, awe, and compassion much more than pretty photos such as puppies in a basket, bunnies, or flowers. As a result of this and what is available in the published literature, we are enhancing these crowd sourced images by presenting them in unique ways to tell their respective stories and allow for those viewing it to be maximally inspired. We are coupling the presentation of these images with other works of wisdom, the science of kindness (which is fascinating), concepts in kindness, mindfulness, and humor.
One of the major outcomes of being kind is happiness. Kindness results in a profound (eudaimonic) type of happiness that most likely results from the fulfillment of biological human need—to have meaning and purpose. Meaning, it is posited, derives from connection that is achieved between two people (or really two living beings). That is, through acts of kindness both the giver and receiver get to connect to one another. That positive interpersonal (social) connection reaffirms to both that they have purpose.
David is a published endocrinologist and scientist who has been faculty at the University of Virginia, studied the effects of potential new drugs at Pfizer, and now leads teams of scientists from around the world to solve common problems in diagnosis of disease or assessing the impact of therapy. David is also an avid, published photographer and student of Tai Chi Chuan and other Eastern arts.
