We are told it is better to give than to receive, but what and how much should we give? Does giving money carry more weight than giving our time?? What if we feel we don’t have enough money or time?
In this episode I (alongside former co-host Garrett Philbin) chat about the benefits of giving, and share practical ways you can begin to find both time and money if giving is important. We talk about why we’ve personally felt that giving money seems more impactful than volunteering time, how our happiness levels change when we do give, and how you can be intentional about giving so that it’s not based out of guilt or obligation.
