Wear Your Heart on Your ‘Tweet’

Written by Tiffany Rose

In a 2015 article in The American Psychological Association’s journal Emotion, researchers found that people who received expressions of gratitude for their actions were more likely to seek an ongoing relationship with the person giving thanks, even if that person was a stranger. So showing some love for a job well done not only makes people feel better but also increases the likelihood that good deeds will continue!

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
