Help others and help yourself

“Be social: Interacting with others supports cognitive health by exercising diverse areas of the brain.

Every time I turn around I cannot help but see or read something that points to the benefits that come from helping and working with other people. I guess that ― Mahatma Gandhi had the right idea when he said: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Our lives are going to get bumpy and messy and tough that is just the way it is. We can plan for everything and something will still come up and catch us off guard. When this happens we feel helpless and out of control. What can we do how can we feel better? Even after we do gain back control and weather the “storm” we feel empty sometimes and wonder is this what life is all about? Some look to religion and others get lost in hobbies habits or work. I challenge you today to make and effort to help others.

Trust me with the tumultuous nature of life there will be no lack of people to help. Not everyone will want help and that is fine too. But you will get the opportunity to help today, and I say do it! Helping others will make you smarter more sympathetic and hello, it is helping. So it will make all of us together better.

peace
