And, since we're already doing good by our community by spreading awareness, I'm thinking why not keep that positive vibe train rolling? If you're like me and you've been looking for a way to keep your smile all fall long, I've got good news. I have a tried-and-true way to keep yourself happy and stress-free.
When giving back gives back to you.
Okay, that might be kind of confusing. How would giving back give back to you? Aren't you supposed to be the one giving? Well aaactually, it turns out that doing something good for others actually helps us feel good about ourselves. I mean, think about it. Don't you feel like you glow a little after you perform a random act of kindness? If you don't know what I'm talking about, try it. Do a few nice things for others tomorrow and see how that makes you feel. Isn't that cool?
Part of the reason giving back helps me feel good is that it makes me feel purposeful. If you're ever feeling down in the dumps about your life, getting out there and making a difference for someone else is a surefire way to boost yourself up.
The science behind why doing good is good for you.
This isn't all just glitter and rainbows and feel-good nonsense, I swear. When you do something for someone else, it actually opens up your brain's mesolimbic pathway. That makes you feel fulfilled and accomplished. Your brain also releases the chemicals that literally make you happy, like dopamine. And studies have shown that people who give back on a regular basis have less anxiety, less depression, lower blood pressure, and fewer heart and brain problems. They even live longer!
So what are you waiting for? If you want a scientifically proven way to feel good, start doing good!
