Lend A Hand
The sad fact is that no matter how bad our situation is, if we look around, we can usually find someone else who is worse off than we are. Helping others is good for our soul and it also has the following benefits:
· Helping others improves our health – research shows it reduces stress and depression and increases life satisfaction.
· Altruism starts a chain reaction – so the helping spreads.
· Giving back makes us happier.
· Helping out gives us a sense of purpose and satisfaction.
So the next time life seems hard, unfair and overwhelming, see if you can help out someone else. It could make a world of difference for them and will give you a boost as well!
