"Scientific evidence has proven that kindness changes the brain, impacts the heart and immune system, and may even be an antidote to depression"
This is means when you do something for someone else, your brain produces hormones. So, giving is beneficial for both the giver and the receiver. A wealth of research supports the theory that giving makes you happy.
When researchers gave two groups some money, telling the first to spend it on them, the second to buy a gift for someone else...
The first group, experienced momentary pleasure, but no long lasting satisfaction, The second group, on the other hand, returned at the end of the day with their happiness levels still high.
The more regularly you give, the more that happiness becomes sustainable. Those who do charity work have supported the emotional benefits of giving too, showing lower levels of depression, and higher levels of self-esteem. It's also good for your relationships.
But the benefits of giving go beyond the emotional. "The act of doing something for another person in any capacity has health benefits," Performing acts of kindness has been found to boost your immune system, keep your heart healthy and even slow the ageing process.
"Giving is also contagious," "It elevates people and inspires them. They process the kind act over and over again and because kindness is occupying their"mind, they are more likely to do it for someone else. You end up with a ripple effect."
The time does pass more quickly than we realize! Looking back, I think patience is one of the biggest lessons. To continue to teaching them right from wrong, good from evil, and how important it is to do the right thing, especially when it's not the easy choice.
There are lots of days we would despair of them learning those lessons. Now they are adults, It is hard to watch them grow and graduate and become adults, but it is so satisfying to become friends with them at that point.
