Your Spare Change Can Give You a DOSE of Happiness

There are many ways to introduce daily giving into your life. One simple way is to collect your spare change to help out others. Not only will it help others, it will give you a DOSE of happiness.

Spare Change – How To Collect It and How to Use It To Spread Happiness

Do you have a change jar? If not, all you need is a jar, a cup, a mug or a bowl placed in a central location in your home. Every day, you can empty your wallet, pockets or purse and collect any spare change you accumulate. After a while, this spare change adds up and can be used to help others.

Increase Happiness – Simple Daily Giving Is The Ticket

This is a simple way to give that also has the added benefit of improving your health by increasing happiness. Giving has a powerful, “feel good” effect on your body, called the “helper’s high”. It decreases stress while giving you the following benefits:

Dopamine – when dopamine is released in large amounts, it creates feelings of pleasure and reward which motivates you to repeat a specific behaviour

Oxytocin – boosts your sense of trust, love, optimism and connection

Seratonin – makes you feel happy and calm while healing your body

Endorphins – give you a natural euphoric rush

A daily habit of giving is more powerful than one big give. By repeating an activity daily, you will increases the health benefits which can provide long term benefits. Soon, collecting your spare change will become a daily habit that you don’t even think about. All the while giving you a daily DOSE of happiness.

Once you sign up for the app and choose your charity, or multiple charities, it will automatically round up your purchase and donate your spare change.
