COMPASSION IS GOOD—AND GOOD FOR YOU

  • It makes us happy. The brain's "pleasure centers" are as activated when you see money going to charity as when it is given to us.
  • It boosts our health and longevity. People who practice compassion produce 23% less cortisol, the "stress" hormone, and 100% more DHEA, a hormone that counteracts the aging process.
  • It makes us attractive. When it comes to dating, both men and women rated "kindness" as most important.
  • It uplifts everyone around us. Seeing people helping each other creates a state of "elevation."
