Have you ever noticed that when you do good you feel happier. Plus, when you engaged in bad behavior, you feel kind of lousy?
Researchers have noticed this pattern – and even have a fancy name for this phenomenon:
“The Do Good, Feel Good Phenomenon.”
Researchers have discovered that the more people do acts of altruism, the higher they raise their self-esteem – and thereby the higher they also raise their happiness.
(Scroll down for a poster which sums this up!)
And down, down, down the results for their life goes.
Get yourself hooked on the Do-Good-Feel-Good upward spiral instead.
Below is an inspirational quote poster I designed – which sums this up quickly.
Pass it on..and boost your upward spiral! 🙂
