Why do we do nice things for others? Why do we enjoy seeing these stories in the media? What’s the psychology behind altruism? Dr. Cohen is featured in a Global News segment, answering these questions.
She explains that watching videos of “random acts of kindness” helps us reflect on ourselves because we all like to think we can do something for others, and be heroic. It also gives us a sense of community, which stems from altruism. Happier people tend to be those who give more.

Try doing something nice for someone and see how it makes you feel!
