It doesn’t take a neuroscientist to know that doing nice things for people feels good. But now, researchers say they’ve discovered that even thinking about doing something generous has real mood-boosting benefits in the brain.

The best way to give is to look around and see what your community needs, then do something to help meet that need. Intentionally giving to others does not always involve money, in fact, there are literally hundreds of other things you can do to give to others. Maybe it’s as simple as creating a niche meetup group, where you can encourage other people with similar passions or interests.
Socially responsible investing is another great way to give back. This means supporting companies that are giving back to the community and conducting business in a sustainable way. Mentoring others is another way you can intentionally give back while empowering people at the same time.
