Research shows that giving increases happiness. Recent research from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Northwestern University offers scientific evidence that giving to others increases happiness. The more often people give, the happier they become.

All the money circulated with love, care and friendship is Happy Money. Happy Money makes people smile and feel loved and cared for deeply. It is in many ways an active form of love.

Anyone can invite more Happy Money into their lives and increase their happiness by becoming a #givefluencer – making giving a way of life:

  1. Help out a family member who is having a tough time financially.
  2. Donate money to help victims of a recent tragedy.
  3. Raise money for a local homeless shelter.
  4. Invest in a small local business that needs support.
  5. Buy a small gift for someone you love.
  6. Donate your valuable time to a cause or individual in need in your community.
  7. See a #givefluencer, be a #givefluencer: Acknowledge and reward other #givefluencers you encounter.

There are so many emotions wrapped up in our money, and it impacts not only ourselves, but others as well. We like to think that money is just a number or a piece of paper, but it is so much more than that. Money brings with it so many emotions – more than we even realize. … So few of us see the potential that money has to bring us joy, gratitude and happiness – especially when we give it away freely and with the same positive energy as we received it.

I just love your outlook on money, Ken Honda . It is a joyful way to look at it, and I agree that invites more money in when you also give it away and are grateful. Thank you for all you share with us.
