If you’ve been in a funk, try this…
I’ve noticed throughout my life that nothing lifts me out of a funk more than helping another person.
Seriously. Something about taking action on behalf of someone else gets me out of my head and lifts my spirits.
When I’m helping someone who needs help, it shifts me immediately out of my funk and into my purpose.
It turns out I’m not unique. Scientific studies prove that doing what you love, donating time, money and attention is actually good for your physical and mental health.
Plus, it’s just, you know, a good thing to do. It makes everyone feel good. and It’s good to feel good.
Consider these points of research.
- Altruism lowers stress, depression, blood pressure, and loneliness.
- It boosts self-esteem, life satisfaction, and community ties.
- People who volunteer in their community report being happier.
- Your positive example encourages others.
- Giving time to others even extends longevity.
Try it today.
You don’t even have to wait for a holiday or until you’re in one of those funks.
P.S. Don’t forget how exercise and eating right boost our spirits and self-esteem.
