“Blessed are those who give without remembering and receive without forgetting.”
As individuals and as a community we should be practicing active kindness, and not just on social media. Giving back and being kind feels GOOD! It costs $0.00 to be a decent and kind human being, so what are we waiting for!? Let’s do it.
Research has shown that the good feelings you experience when helping others may be just as important to your health as exercise and a healthy diet.Making a difference in someone’s life really is the greatest feeling in the world, to prove it, I’ve put together a list of benefits from giving back, check them out below!
#1 Giving Back To Your Community – Everyone, rich or poor, takes from society, and giving back is one way to show a sense of appreciation.
#2 You Gain A New Perspective – Sometimes you need to step out of your bubble. Life can be hard, but seeing people who are worse off than you, yet still hanging in there, can really help you see your life in a whole new light, while also inspiring you to want to help others.
#3 Boost Your Self-Esteem – Helping others will make you feel good about yourself, knowing you’re doing something for someone that they couldn’t do for themselves is a very rewarding and humbling experience.
#4 Know That You Are Needed– Maybe you don’t feel needed or appreciated at home or at work. While giving back you’ll be meeting people who need your help – this is a strong incentive to continue, people need your help, they are depending on you.
#5 Improving Your Health – As stated earlier, giving back is actually good for you! Studies have shown that giving back (in any way, donating time, money or goods) makes people feel physically healthier, manage chronic health conditions and lower stress!
GIVE BACK. Make an impact! If you are looking to make a real, lasting difference in this world, start NOW! Unlike other aspects of your life you may not be able to control, giving back allows you to choose where and how to make a difference.
