Here’s a regular practice that will make a huge difference in creating a positive outlook:
Make a true difference for others without expectation of anything in return.
Studies have shown that givers are happier. Generosity breeds financial contentment: People who are great with money know that when they give to people in need (and causes that they value) it shifts their attention from themselves onto helping others. Studies on happiness have shown that when we assist others we benefit as well. Financial stress is usually associated with fears of not having enough, losing what’s been accumulated or making a big mistake. Giving is an amazing stress buster.
How and where you choose to give will depend on what you most value in life. But you can start today by doing something unexpected for someone else.
