2020 has been a tough time for most people's mental health.
However, it has made a lot of us examine the way we live and make changes which serve our wellbeing.
A recent study found people have become kinder and more altruistic since the pandemic began. This has tangible benefits - Evidence shows when we do something kind for others, our brain releases feel-good endorphins (sometimes called 'helper's high'), which can help restore our chemical balance and counteract the effects of stress and anxiety. It also helps foster connection, which is crucial for our psychological health.
