Assuming the role of someone who is consistently helpful towards other people can immediately increase your sense of well-being by allowing you to view others through a vision of goodwill instead of judgement. You can start doing this by starting your day listening to inspirational audiobooks. Once you get out and start the day, just keep your eyes open for those who are in need of a helping hand. Since more people are out during the good weather, summer is usually the best time to find those in need of some good deeds.
- When your helping reflex is greater than your judging reflex, you are generally a happier person.
- If you change your personal lens from judgement to goodwill, your judgement reflex becomes much weaker.
- Listening to excerpts of inspirational audio books is one way to foster a benevolent frame of mind.
“Simply assuming the role of a helpful person, in any situation, helps me become a more naturally helpful person, and also creates an immediate sense of well-being.”
