Give To Others, Receive Personal Joy

Red Christmas Gifts And Presents With White RibbonIt feels good to give during the holiday season. There are so many less fortunate people who deserve a little cheer at this time of the year. Today, we are sharing ways that you can give to others in order to receive personal joy.

Volunteer your time
Sign up to be a bell ringer for the Salvation Army. Or spend your Saturday providing meals to the homeless.

Sign up to help a family in need
There are so many families who can’t afford gifts for their children or can’t afford to have a holiday meal. When my girls were in high school there was a program to adopt a family. Each classroom took on a family that could not afford certain things at the holidays. All of the presents were wrapped and hand delivered for the children to open. It really made my girls feel good.

Invite someone to spend the holidays with you
Sadly, there are so many people who don’t have anyone to spend the holidays with. No one should be alone. If you want to help spread the holiday cheer invite an elderly neighbor to eat with you. It will make your day and theirs.

Donate household items or money
It always seems that we acquire so much stuff at the holidays. I have a friend who had a rule for children; for every toy they got at Christmas they had to donate one to charity. It’s the perfect way to give and declutter!

Focusing on wellness of the mind is really important during the holiday season. If you’re interested in more ways to center your mind pick up the Women’s Mind Body Wellness Summit today!
