Give To Others

Give to Others

Research suggests that giving to others can help boost your mental wellbeing by:

  • helping you to connect with other people
  • giving you a sense of purpose and self-worth
  • creating positive feelings and a sense of reward


This doesn't have to be large acts but could be as simple as:

  • Holding a door open for someone
  • Picking up something that someone has dropped on the floor
  • Taking a cake round to an elderly neighbour or grandparent
  • Making a cup of tea for your mum or dad when you see they are tired at the end of the day.


The feel good factor of being kind and knowing you have bought a smile to the face of someone else is infectious and has such positive effects on your own mental health and wellbeing as well as brightening up another persons day!
