The Exciting New Research Confirming the Most Ancient of Messages

Giving to Others Makes for Meaningful Living and Improved Wellbeing

Research output: Contribution to conference (non-published works)Abstract


By engaging with the latest research evidence available and the perennial wisdom of spiritual traditions, Dr Nielsen will in this talk, investigate why giving to others seems to be the most healthy thing that we can do as humans, making us healthier, happier and even live longer. It is an investigation that yields surprising results in terms of how we may best live our lives as individuals – and which in turn has profound implications for how we raise and teach children and adolescents. Giving to others, it turns out, is one of the best predictors of increasing not only communal and individual wellbeing in the classroom, but also academic diligence and success.
