Beauty Resolution #4
Like the picture says, this is pretty self explanatory, when you do good shit...good shit happens! Did you know it is actually a scientific fact that doing good shit makes you feel better.
Have you ever felt a rush after doing a good deed? More relaxed after a day of volunteering? Did you ever feel motivated to do good after thinking about the last time you helped someone? That sensation is known as 'helpers high' and is produced when your brain releases endorphins, the feel-good chemicals of the brain. When you do good shit for someone else, your brain’s pleasure centers light up, releasing endorphin and producing this high. If this isn't enough to convince you doing good shit also lowers your blood pressure, decreases cortisol levels and helps to fight off depression. If you are not too sure what to do...here are some things to get you started;
* Shovel your neighbours walk when you do your own
* Volunteer at an association that has meaning to you
* If you see someone needing assistance...assist them
* Donate your old towels and sheets to the humane society
* Volunteer at the YWCA or YMCA
There are so many options big and small to do good shit, I try to at least do 1 good thing each day for someone else, this may be complimenting someones outfit or giving a hug that is clearly need or just listening.
Whatever it is you choose to do will be perfect!
This is going to be the last beauty resolution for a while, we are going to let these sink in and I am going to add little nuggets of knowledge here every week and probably continue with the beauty resolutions again in the spring. Until then happy self love journey and don't forget...
DO GOOD SHIT
