We’ve all heard it’s better to give than to receive, but did you know that studies indicate giving can lead to longer-lasting happiness?
There’s actually a whole science behind it. Seriously!
In 2017, a neurological study released findings showing that generosity can actually change the activity in our brains.
It went like this: 50 men and women were given $25 once a week for an entire month. Half were asked to spend the money on themselves, the other half was asked to spend the money on others. Participants also participated in MRI testing at the beginning and end of the study.
After just four weeks, participants brains showed greater activity in the portion of the brain associate with altrusim… and that portion of the brain appeared to communicate more readily with the brain’s reward center.
If you talk to any of my clients, I think we can all agree that the topic of giving is bound to come up! I love being a daymaker and showering others with gifts. I love making another person’s day brighter.
So what exactly does it mean when you’re a daymaker?
Being a daymaker means you focus on someone. One person. And you decide “I’m gonna make this person’s day…better than it was before.”
It isn’t about how much money you spend or extravagant gift giving. It’s about letting that person know that you value their time, their energy, and/or their services.
It can be as simple as letting the person making your coffee know how much
you appreciate them and leaving an extra $5 tip. It can be a delivery of flowers left on someone’s doorstep. It can be reaching out and making them feel they are a valued and important part of your life.
In this week’s episode of Go Time TV, I want to help you become a daymaker and find deeper happiness.
