By Helping Others We Help Ourselves

Helping Others Feels Good – Helping others promotes a rush of endorphins in my brain brought about by positive physiological changes which makes me happier and healthier.

Giving also connects me to others, creating stronger communities and helping to build a happier society for everyone. It’s not all about money to give my time, ideas and energy.

There’s an enormous connection between helping and supporting others and our mental health and wellbeing.

Do you remember the last time you helped someone by performing an act of kindness?

Remember the warm feeling of joy that you felt flow through your body and the extra bounce in your step?

Studies have shown that helping others is beneficial to our mental and physical health. Putting other people’s needs before our own can reduce stress and improve mood, self-esteem, and happiness.

The facts of how it works:

The More You Do For Others, The More You Do For Yourself – Studies show that the benefits of helping others can last long after the act itself, providing kindness memories to be drawn upon when you need to be lifted up.

Brings a Sense of Belonging – Part of the enjoyment of helping others is that it makes you part of a social network, which leads to a sense of belonging. Face-to-face activities meant to help someone else can also aid in reducing the “helper’s” feelings of loneliness or isolation.

Helping Others Feels Good – Helping others promotes a rush of endorphins in your brain brought about by positive physiological changes. Offering help distracts you from your own problems, allowing you to participate in meaningful activity.

Helps Make the World a Happier Place – Helping others can be contagious! Your good deed may encourage someone else to perform their own  act of kindness.

Helps Keep Things in Perspective – When you help someone in need, it often provides a sense of perspective to help you realise how lucky you are. It can enable you to have a more positive outlook on your life and what you have to be grateful for.

Remember, helping others doesn’t have to cost money or take a lot of time. Providing emotional support to others with a simple phone call is a great way to begin. Research has shown that those who consistently help other people experience less depression and greater calm resulting in a better mental state of mind.

I love my life!!
