The Choice of Happiness, 5th seminar of a course by Oana Velcu-Laitinen, PhD and certified coach.

Generosity, the quality of doing good to others without being asked, has been scientifically proven to increase the feeling of interdependence and cooperation in communities. In the 5th seminar of the course The Choice of Happiness, we’ll discuss the role of generosity in relationships (romantic relationships, family relationships, friendships, co-workers). We’ll delve into the motivations that drive people to act generously, the benefits of acting generously and inspiring acts of generosity that famous or less famous people have done. We’ll end the session with customised strategies for living more generously.

Here is the link to one of Oana’s blog posts, which talks about four habits that we can develop in order to give and receive empathy and the motivation to embrace those habits:
