If you think on the good things in your life, you will remember them more and more, and feel at peace with what you have. If you think on the bad things in your life, your will remember them, more and more and you will be unhappy, thinking on bad things instead of good.
You are what you think, if you look on yourself as a person who has good luck in your life, you will find more good luck than bad. Our ideas about what is good and what is bad mould our life. Be careful to see the good, and you can live the good.
Doing bad deeds may give you and adrenaline rush, and you can get things done, but that rush will be short lived, lasting up to an hour only, and you will feel flat afterwards.
When you do good things those feel good chemicals will be released – endorphin, oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine. These chemicals do in fact feel good to you, and are not harmful to the body, unless they lead to things that may result in bad things. The runner’s high you may get when when being active may lead you to not realising you are damaged and can cause greater ill effects.
Taking all of this into account, it is obvious that being good is better for a person, with those feel good chemicals all flooding in. But doing good can lead to better things in a community, and even on a more global level, with people doing good things for others that lead to many useful and good things.
Volunteer groups, with many people helping other people, and doing random acts of kindness, presenting workshops that help others, starting up self-help groups, and a variety of other things, these may in fact begin with people seeking to help, and enjoying the way that helping makes them feel.
Doing good for others, truly can and usually does, feel good for the do-gooder! Doing bad things certainly has no lasting beneficial effect. If you’ve ever wondered whether you should do good things, the answer is certainly a resounding YES! Weigh up what time you have available, for sure, but if and when you can easily do more good things, DO IT!
And have good things in your life, family, friends, pets, a garden, trees, all good things! Having a purpose and good things to do in your life, these can add to feeling good about yourself, and they can also help with your health and well-being.
