Reach out to help
Psychologists say that we will tend to feel better about ourselves and our situations the more we reach out to help others in thier situations. It is a golden principle of life that we should do unto others as we would want others to do unto us.
In that effect, doing something for another is actually doing something for ourselves. We are, as the saying goes, killing two birds with one stone when we do this.
Make it a part of your life routine to regularly reach out to others especially in areas where you struggle yourself. If you need more financially, find someone to help out with thier bills. If you are discouraged, then find someone to encourage. If you need others to help you with a project, then help someone out with thier project.
It almost sounds counterintuitive, but it really works. Put it on your schedule today to reach out.
