Generosity is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. It has the power to not only change your life but also can impact the world around you and everyone you interact with.
Generosity can be displayed towards ourselves, our family, extended community and towards complete strangers. It is something that can be cultivated and improved upon in our everyday lives, and when we do so, the byproduct is that we experience more joy, have stronger relationships and live longer!
Who doesn’t want that?
Below is a list of insightful research papers and presentations on the amazing science of generosity. It’s well worth the read.
