How does giving improve your health according to the text?


According to numerous studies, giving can significantly improve both your physical and emotional health. This includes better heart health, increased happiness, and heightened self-awareness. Dr. Stephen Post's research, spanning over 50 years, has found that critically ill patients who give to charity or volunteer their time enjoy numerous health benefits, including a longer lifespan. Moreover, giving activates the mesolimbic pathway in your brain, which is associated with the perception of reward. When you make a decision that benefits someone else, dopamine, a happiness chemical, floods through this pathway, making you feel happier and more content. Daffy, a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF), is a great platform to start your giving journey. It allows you to set up recurring contributions to causes you care about, inspiring others to follow your lead. By giving through Daffy, you're not only contributing to a good cause but also improving your health and well-being. So why wait?
