It is better to give than to receive, according to stress psychologists as the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

The study, published in Psychophysiology, gave stressed people a choice between sending a gift to a person of their choosing and choosing a gift for themselves.

They were allowed to choose the gift they wanted to send and write a message explaining why they wanted to treat that person in particular.

The people who gifted to themselves saw no significant change, while the people who gifted to someone else had a significant drop in both blood pressure and heart rate.
