How To Boost Happiness

Science shows that staying positive can lead to a longer and happier life. It's not complicated: Improving your diet, spending time in nature, and exercising can improve your overall well-being. And there's one more key ingredient: compassion.

According to Epoch Times, compassion is being sensitive to the suffering of others (and ourselves) coupled with action. Empathy is just recognizing the suffering of others; compassion is acting to help. This simple shift can have profound benefits, including reduced loneliness, increased happiness, and lower cardiovascular risk. In fact, a 10-year study found that compassion has a more positive impact on wellbeing than smoking has negative effects.

In essence, performing kind deeds and taking real actions not only boost your own well-being, but they also foster meaningful connections. You'll find yourself surrounded by like-minded people who appreciate your kindness and are willing to lend a hand in return, which creates a cycle of positivity that leads to a life filled with happiness and genuine friendships.
