Mindful : February 2018
There is no experience more uplifting than giving. At the base of generosity is compassion, which research finds has a direct impact on well-being. You know what’s even cooler? Generosity is generative: The more you practice, the better you feel, and the easier it becomes to be generous! Plus, it’s con- tagious. Your act of generos- ity very well might inspire someone else to act kindly toward another. And you can start right away, where you are. Tip the server 18% instead of your usual 15%. Give a bit more to char- ity this month, or dedicate more of your time to helping friends, family, and strang- ers than you normally do. Or get more connected: Try smiling at a stranger, tell a friend that you appreciate them, or tell a loved one how much they mean to you. It all adds up—and adds to your happiness quotient. ● BE GENEROUS: IT’S CONTAGIOUS! PARTING THOUGHT Available Now! Stimulus-Free Joy We often think of happiness as the side effect of some stimulus, either external (sensory) or internal (ego). But author Chade-Meng Tan says that happiness is readily available independent of either. Accessing this natural reserve of happiness, what he calls “joy on demand,” requires three things: a mind at rest, the recognition of even small moments when you feel good, and basking in “wholesome joy,” which arises from things like sharing and giving—he compares it to wholesome food for the body. 3 February 2018 mindful 21
