Daily Words of WisdomJanuary 18, 2019
Have you ever held the door open for someone or done something nice for a classmate or friend? What about volunteering to help with a chore at home or at school? When you help others, it makes you feel good, doesn’t it?
Well, guess what? There’s a scientific reason why you feel good when you are being a helper. When you help other people, your brain starts sending “feel-good” signals out to the rest of your body. You begin to feel happier and more peaceful. Brain scientists can actually see wonderful changes in the human brain when people are being helpers.
So remember this wonderful bit of wisdom:
When you help others, you help yourself.
And next time you are feeling sad or stressed out or antsy, get busy being a helper. You’ll feel better if you do.
