2) Giving Helps You Feel More Connected to Those Around You
Don't know where to start giving? Start small in your own circle. In a 2013 study, it was proven that spending money on those who are a part of your community creates a boost in happiness and fosters a deeper connection. Whether it is by donating to a certain cause via a friend, family member, or social connection, the positive feelings you get from giving to those around you is even larger than the positive feelings you may get from donating anonymously to a special cause.
