Compassion: Our First Instinct

Science shows that we are actually wired for compassion, not self-interest.

Our acts of compassion uplift others and make them happy. We may not know it, but by uplifting others we are also helping ourselves; research by Fowler and Christakis has shown that happiness spreads and that if the people around us are happy, we, in turn become happier.

Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

Extensive exploration of compassion from how we cultivate it to how it benefits our bodies, minds and mood. Practicing compassion wards off stress, depression, illness and increases happiness, longevity, and desired behavior. Compassion changes the world.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, August 14, 2013 8:35 PM

According to the article, “Compassion is defined as the emotional response when perceiving suffering and involves an authentic desire to help.  It is not surprising that compassion is a natural tendency since it is essential for human survival.” While perhaps it is a natural tendency, it is not an overly common occurrence in today’s dog-eat-dog world.  However, if people were truly committed to extending compassion on a more regular basis, we would all be in a better place.  How about starting a trend today?!
