The holiday season is a wonderful time for family, friends, and gratitude. Christmas reminds us of the power of a kind gesture, word, loving action or connection we can have upon one another. Those who are more selfless will also produce far greater levels of dopamine, and endorphins the “feel good” hormones which are vital and highly beneficial to our mental well-being.
