What if we told you that giving and spreading love, happiness and peace could bring you more of such positivity in return? The universe is built around the cycle of karma, and giving works in similar ways. We get what we give - it’s as simple as that - and this works in all walks of life.
Humans, by nature fall into the trap of wanting more. Think about it - why do you think lotteries and sweepstakes are so successful? Or getting an adrenaline rush when you see the number of likes or followers going up on your socials? This is because we believe that when we feel that validation is the only way to happiness - a common misconception.
What if I tell you can be happy and content through making others happy? Giving activates pleasure centres in the brain which occurs in similar ways to receiving a gift. Clearly becoming a win-win situation for both the persons involved.
When you give to others, your generosity is reciprocated in more ways than one. Always remember that this holds true when you give without expecting anything in return.
And the founder’s of Agora Curated couldn’t agree more.
Resham Melwani, Co-founder Agora Curated says, “I grew up in a culture where giving was really important. I was taught to care for others and always share what I had. To me giving make us happier because we often receive more joy-giving than receiving. Giving helps build connection and community.”
Sharmishta Basappa, Co-founder Agora Curated, shares similar thoughts - “Giving is a huge mood-booster. Knowing that you’re helping others is really empowering and it can give you a sense of purpose and fulfilment.”
Speaking of giving, it’s not always about grand gestures and big gifts, sometimes even a thoughtful “Hope you’re safe” can go a long way. Here are some ways you could seamlessly incorporate giving in your life.
