When was the last time you randomly, helped someone? Do you remember that warm fuzzy feeling it gave you?? Today, I noticed an elderly lady having trouble getting out of her car and I noticed a suitcase near her car and realised it was hers. I asked her if she needed a hand…..She said she had no idea how she was going to get the case into her car and was so grateful that I had helped her. She felt happy and so did I. Knowing that you have really helped someone without being asked feels good. Studies have proven that when we help others that our happiness improves. The actual hormones that help make us happy, oxytocin is released and in turn we become happier. I suppose that saying “what you sow is what you reap” is true. Now we all know that when we are happier, we are healthier, so it is a win, win situation. Remember a time when you did something for someone…not for guilt, ego or greed but from a genuine caring place? It literally feels great. It may be as simple as offering to open a door for someone or smiling and saying hello to someone that you don’t know. It may be doing volunteer work or checking on an elderly neighbour, picking up a piece of rubbish and putting in a bin. It all helps others and wonderfully helps you too. Try and every day do something for someone….from the heart and with love. Over the next few days be a kindness fairy and let us know how you go? If you like it, why not make it a lifelong habit???? Please let us know some of you kindness fairy acts??????
