Generous giving and sharing love is the oldest form of creating happiness. Love when shared grows thousand times. the best thing about sharing love is that the giver is equally happy as much as the recipient. Animals even recognise the sharing of love. The generous you are in sharing love you received it back too in the same proportions. So if you are enough generous it is actually going to build your happiness quotient. Now even the scientist have confirmed that the generosity in sharing and caring builds people happier. Perhaps that is the reason that people love generous hosts for a dinner. The icing on the cake is along with good food you offer good ambience as well and a very personal touch.
Scientists have found that generosity made people happier and promising to be more generous was enough to trigger a change in our brain giving us pleasant feeling.
Researchers said those who were concerned about the well-being of their fellow human beings were happier than those who focused on their own advancement. Doing something nice for another person gives many a pleasant feeling that behavioural economists call a warm glow.
University of Zurich researchers investigated how areas in the brain communicated to produce this feeling.However, amount of generosity did not influence the increase in contentment. “You do not need to become a selfsacrificing martyr to feel happier. Just being a little more generous will suffice,“ said Philippe Tobler from the university .
Before the experiment, so me of the participants had verbally committed to behaving generously. This group was willing to accept higher costs to do something nice for others. They also considered themselves happier after their generous behaviour than the control group, who had committed to behaving generously towards themselves.
“Intent alone generates a neural change before the action is actually implemented.“ said Tobler.
