In the spirit of generosity and gratitude, we are offering you a free month subscription when you gift a month to someone you love. If you are buying gifts this season, gifting mindfulness is a beautiful way to show gratitude to those in your life. As you probably know, giving is a great way to feel good. It lights up the mesolimbic system in the brain, the circuit for pleasure and reward, and it stimulates the production of dopamine (the feel good hormone). In other words, giving feels about as good as eating chocolate or enjoying a great glass of wine. Learn more here

In this season of giving thanks and giving gifts, I’ve been thinking about these two questions a lot:

  • What inspires you to give?
  • Who is the most generous person you know and how have they inspired you?

My mentor, who was the kindest, most generous person I knew, taught me the skills that would change my life—mindfulness and meditation. It was my gratitude for his kindness and generosity that inspired the creation of the Stop, Breathe & Think App, to share what he offered me with as many people as I could.

So what inspires you to give? Who is the most generous person you know and how have they inspired you? We’d love to hear your stories!

Happy giving!

PS: A great way to create fertile ground for generosity is to practice the kindness meditation. Take ten minutes, and feel your heart get bigger!
