THE ART OF GIFT GIVING
Did you know that gift giving is an ancient tradition ranging back to the dawn of time? Giving a gift is a universal way to show interest, appreciation and gratitude. One thing is for sure, gifting has many positive psychological benefits.
But here's something that might surprise you. Psychologists have found that it isn't just the receiver who benefits - but the giver is the one to get most of the positive rewards. You see, giving - thoughtful, generous giving - makes us feel good. It usually has nothing to do with the material value, and everything with the thought and intention behind it. When we give without expecting anything in return, we are improving our emotional and mental well-being.
And can we please not forget self-gifting! A most important and self-loving act.
We've seen a surge in practicing gratitude and gifting during the pandemic. Whether it's NHS staff, key workers, teachers, neighbours, employees - even strangers who just reached out in times of crisis. We are all more appreciative.
Although gift-giving can be a wonderful practice, choosing the right gift for a colleague, friend or loved one can cause a range of emotions from joy to anxiety.
