Every day is a new day – we wake up with but a memory of yesterday’s events, ready to start afresh and make the day one to be remembered for all of the right reasons. Of course, in life, there are certain tasks that need to be done every day. From going out to work to doing the washing up; we all have daily tasks that need to be completed and a routine that needs to be followed.
But why not incorporate something good into your daily routine? Helping the elderly, helping the homeless, donating the stuff you don’t use anymore to charity – there are plenty of ways in which you can help vulnerable people right on your own doorstep.
Doing a good deed every day doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming. Sometimes, even just the smallest acts of charitable giving can have a massive impact. For example, something as simple as taking the time to have a chat and a cup of tea with an elderly neighbour who lives alone can make a real impression on that person’s life, helping to ward off loneliness and giving them something to look forward to.
The act of giving can also add value to your own life. Donating your time or money to a good cause is the ultimate selfless deed, and the benefits of regularly giving will gradually begin to reflect in your day-to-day life.
Making the commitment to do a good deed every day may seem like a daunting task at first, but after you have been doing it for a few months, it will start to become second nature. No longer will you have to ensure you set aside time to do your good deed every day – instead, you will just begin to do it without even having to think about it.
The best way to get started doing a good deed every day is by taking the time to think about which issues matter the most to you and what you can do to change them for the better. Start locally and work on making a positive change in your own community – after all, it is just as important to support those close to us as it is to help people in need around the world. Helping the elderly is a good way to start, or helping the homeless by distributing food and warm clothes, or by volunteering at a local shelter or food bank.
Make charitable giving a way of life; commit to doing a good deed every day to change your life and the lives of others around you for the better.
