3 reasons why giving really is better than receiving

December 15, 2014

You've heard this countless times, especially during the holiday season. But do you know why it holds true? It's more than just the fuzzy feeling. Although that's part of it.

 

Evidence from multiple scientific studies supports the fact that giving is actually good for your health.

  • it reduces cortisol levels, caused by stress, which can not only increase your quality of life, but add years
  • even small acts of generosity have been shown to be key in lasting, loving relationships, which has been linked to overall well-being, given that we're social creatures
  • helping others is linked to decreased levels of depression and improved life satisfaction

So there you have it. Giving is good for you. 

 

Head on over to the shop and give a little something to someone special to start off the new year feeling great!
