I recently learned about research behind the “helper’s high” — strong feelings people experience from helping others — and am considering preparing a lesson about it.

I’ve gathered some resources here, and would love for people to make additional suggestions:

The Science of Good Deeds: The ‘helper’s high’ could help you live a longer, healthier life. is from Web MD.

The Helper’s High is from The Greater Good Science Center.

What We Get When We Give is from Psychology Today.

Helper’s High is from Allan Luks.

Giving Support To Others Has Remarkable Effects On Your Brain is from PsyBlog.

The power of givers:They boost autonomy in themselves and others & send ripples of kindness across an organization. is from Research Digest.
