Lessen the Pain with Altruistic Behavior
With all the chaos happening each day, it's quite difficult to do things that will help other people. Each one of us deals with different challenges and stresses that life brings every single day. Due to these, all aspects of our life get affected, which most often leads to physical pain as well. But, a team of researchers found a way to lessen the pain.
As mentioned earlier, it's hard to help others when you, yourself, are dealing with something. But, according to the paper of some researchers, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, engaging with altruistic behaviors cause you to feel less pain than those who don't. In their study, they did four experiments that will test out their theory. Find out what happened here.
