The Value of Giving
Feels like a cup of hot cocoa...
Setting aside the festive lights, the decorated trees, the snow, and all the rest, hands down our favorite thing about this time of year is what it stands for – giving.
The [Many] Values of Giving
No one can deny – it’s the most important aspect of the holiday season, and for good reason. Not only does all that giving generate a kinder and more generous world, but it has all kinds of hidden benefits. Among those who give and receive, it increases happiness, optimism, and a sense of calm, and believe it or not, it leads to better overall physical health!
And here’s a life hint: Most of those benefits don’t come by being the receiver. So no matter who you are or how bad you think your gift-giving abilities are, get out there and give, give, give! Even in the worst case scenario, you make the world a better place.
Need help getting started or changing your behavior? The Bodhi Program approaches giving from multiple angles, helping you become more compassionate and more giving in a way that’s true to you.
Happy Holidays, and we look forward to seeing you in the program!
