Altruism

		

Altruism and the positive emotions that go with it—kindness, compassion, gratitude, appreciation—are strongly linked to closer relationships and a better sense of community.

Improving these social connections is one of the most important things we can do to increase our happiness. Kindness and generosity are ways to reach out to others and promote greater well-being for ourselves and our communities.
