Feeling down? Helping someone else will help.

Every so often, when we are feeling a little blue, it seems like there’s nothing we can do to snap ourselves back to cheerfulness.  But there’s an easy, inexpensive, widely accessible way to feel better- helping someone else. Read on!

Feeling down can get us looking inward – and get us thinking.  In these times, thinking is bad – often we’re dwelling on an event, a decision or a conversation we wish had gone differently.  Where we really need to be is out of our own heads!  To do that, we look into (gasp!) our own hearts, and out towards family and community members who need us.  Chances are you won’t have to look far to find a friend who’s lonely, an aunt who needs help moving, or a fire station that wouldn’t love some chocolate chip cookies.

You’ll find it’s pretty easy to help people. Even something little like picking up a neighbor’s mail when they are on vacation, or picking up litter downtown when you see it, you’ve got the instinct!  When you feel yourself going inwards, draw from that, give of yourself, and feel your spirit lift.

Be well, and love well.
