How does it feel when you care for someone and receive blessings in return?

How does it feel to share a slice of pizza with a hungry friend?

Both caring and sharing trigger the feel good hormone oxytocin, also known as the “cuddle hormone”, released when there is a social bonding. This makes us feel happy.

I remember, as kids, our parents always told us to share with our siblings and friends. I did the same with my children and I hope that it is passed on to the next generation as well.

My mantra is to share whenever I can, whatever I can. It makes me feel good. The oxytocin in the brain relieves stress and anxiety. So why not generate some!

Share your smile everyday with at least one person.

Share a joke with a friend.

Share laughter with people close to you, with your spouse, with your colleagues, with your parents.

Share a slice of knowledge in any form.

Share a conversation with a stranger you bump into.

Share, with a friend, what you view when you look out the window when driving to work or while sitting in your cosy corner.

Share, with your children, some vulnerable moments in your life.

Share, with your colleague, a moment that changed your life forever.

Share an incident that taught you a precious lesson of life.

Share something you own, with someone who does not own it.

There is no end to what one can share. Care to share something, with someone, everyday!
