"If you want to be happy, practise compassion.” Dalai Lama

If someone shows kindness, caring, and a willingness to help others, they’re showing compassion. This is a word for a very positive emotion that has to do with being thoughtful and decent.

When you have compassion, you’re putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and really feeling for them. Compassion builds our ability to understand someone else’s situation and the desire to take action to improve their lives.

  • strengthens your immune system
