Human-Nature - Give

Give |  to show your human spirit

Participation in social and community life has attracted a lot of attention in wellbeing research.  People who give and show a greater interest in helping others (or in helping the environment) are more likely to rate themselves as happy.  Research shows that acts of kindness often associates with an increased overall happiness and a sense of wellbeing.

By giving some of your time, or by joining a community or conservation group, it may help you to see yourself and your happiness linked to the wider community and environment.  It can be incredibly rewarding and create connections with new people and the world around you.
