5 Ways to Wellbeing: Give

Research has shown that people who help others or carry out regular acts of kindness are more likely to rate themselves as happy and have a greater sense of wellbeing. Engaging in acts of kindness and giving helps us strengthen our connections with others and help refocus away from material belongings as a marker of what makes us happy. Notice how you feel when you have helped others or performed an act of kindness. Even the smallest acts make a difference to our wellbeing.

  • Make a colleague a cup of tea
