Give to Others
Giving is free, giving is easy; giving feels good! Do something nice for a friend, thank someone, smile, volunteer your time. Any acts of kindness, whether small or large can help you look after your wellbeing.
Giving to others helps, whether it's time, energy or money
It helps you and it helps others. We shouldn’t be embarrassed to acknowledge it. By giving we get something back in turn, and because it feels good, we should do it more.
Giving can take many shapes and it can start small, so give it a try and see what happens.
Research has established the long term benefits of giving, but sometimes we want to feel good straight away. Choosing the right way to give can make that happen.
Research also tells us how people behave, and what lies behind their action.
