The definition of generosity is the quality of being willing to share
True generosity is often described as the act of recognising the mutual dignity inherent in all life, and then working to balance the evolving empowerment of life – put simply, helping others.
Being generous does more than benefit the receiver.
Studies show that people are often happier spending money on others and, as we are biologically wired for generosity, one of the biggest benefactors of ‘giving’ is the person who gives – YOU!
Research undertaken in Michigan USA shows that being generous improves mental and physical health and reduces stress.But thats not all. Generosity also increases the givers life span and it enhances their sense of purpose.
Giving can happen in many ways, like doing good deeds and giving smiles and hugs. On this site articles, talks, meditations and other practical tools are developed, processed and offered freely for anyone to access.
Ability Life is a profit for purpose and as the name implies, our work is mainly undertaken and delivered at no charge, mostly into the community, health and mental health sector. We want to broaden the reach of our resources, particularly into country or regional areas where isolation, lonliness and life challenges like drought, flood and fire can have such dramatic consequences.
We ask that you consider giving a small donation. It will be a gift of generosity as you won’t get a tax deduction, but you will get the benefits – and our thanks.
