Top 10 Scientific Benefits of Compassion

By Emma Seppala, Ph.D.

Happy Holidays! In the spirit of love, warmth and companionship, I’ve made this infographic on the scientific benefits of Compassion!

We often think that we will gain happiness by achieving, receiving or attaining. We also think that in order to be happy, we have to receive love. Think again!

Research shows that our greatest fulfillment comes in large part from being connected to others and from helping them.

There is truth to the saying “It is in giving that we receive.”

Compassion brings meaning and researchers have found that living a life of meaning is one of the greatest determinants of happiness. Not only does compassion ensure depth, fulfillment and purpose in our lives, studies show that it has powerful health benefits and even leads to a longer life!
