Two interesting series from How To Cope with Pain.

HTCwP's post in January and February 2012 were challenging us to give. These posts are timely when you consider what we are now learning about neuroplasticity. We all know we feel good when we are charitable  but now it seems that the brain also changes in a positive way when we give. Harbaugh, Mayr and Burghat reported on  
Neural Responses to Taxation and Voluntary Giving Reveal Motives for Charitable Donations.
Although this research applies to financial giving, one would expect that the same applies to other forms of giving.

The other series for March 2012 is Practising Daily Gratitude. Here's a great article about gratitude and neuroscience Etiquette: Daily Gratitude Improves Our Brain Function. 
It seems the Professor who has How To Cope With Pain website is helping us to help ourselves in simple positive ways.
