Have you ever felt a sense of joy when giving others a hand? Perhaps you enjoy lending other people a hand because it makes you smile when they’re happy, or maybe you actively seek out ways to enrich the lives of others. It goes without saying that helping others can bring us joy, by why does this happen?
Studies have shown that helping others can lead to positive physiological changes in the brain which are linked to happiness.
When we help others, it makes us feel like we’re a part of something bigger. Helping others can give purpose to our actions, and it helps us build an identity of our own. We feel rewarded, fulfilled, and closer to those around us.
Helping others can help you be more socially active. This makes it easier for you to build long-lasting bonds and you’ll create strong friendships with people in your local community.
Having a positive impact on someone can promote optimism. People often feel like they have no hope or that nobody cares enough to assist them. When you show compassion to others and they react positively to it, it boosts your mood and makes you more optimistic.
