Being kind and being happy are the two things that we always endeavor to be in life. Sometimes, we do forget that these two are very close. When doing good, both the benefactor and the recipient will be happy. Nobody loses when you do good. Although, not many people can relate to the relationship between personal happiness and doing good deeds; if many of us do, this will surely motivate us to do more good deeds. Below are some of the reasons why it is important to do good deeds every day:
It feels good to do good
It is as simple as that. We also get something in return when we do good, act positively and help others. What we get in return are good vibes! When you take a look at someone’s bucket list, you will see life-long happiness and discover another real meaning in life. There is always a great impact on our sense of self-worth and self-esteem when we do good and help others. In other words, people do good because they feel good doing it.
The law of karma means what goes around surely comes around, and whether you believe this or not, you will surely get back what you give out into the world. This simply means that you will reap whatever you sow. This is one of the reasons why most people enjoy planting of kindness and love seeds so that they too will enjoy a lifetime of kindness and love in return. The expression “do unto others what you would like them to do to you” couldn’t be simpler! In short, for you to expect good deeds from people when you need it, you need to do such to people first when you can.
Increases your social network
Being generous will make you have great friends. It is not possible to be kind and generous and be without good friends. People who do good deeds everyday emit prosocial behavior’. Their good deeds spread across their social network. This also inspires them to continue doing their positive actions and boosts the value of their social connections with people. When you do good to someone, that person will get attracted to you, and they will want to do good to you in return.
It helps you develop as a person
Many people are able to confirm that doing good deeds every day help them grow enormously. An example is that you will meet a lot of people and know how people in developing countries are living when you join an international aid charity. You will understand the world better and become more emotionally and culturally aware of what is going on in the world. Giving food and things to homeless people will make you appreciate what you have like nutritious food, a warm bed, and a roof above your head.
