Pay it forward with this amazing app!
It is a wide-held belief that a key to happiness is helping others. We all know the banal quotes that support this notion; however I am a strong believer in it is better to give than to receive. In fact, scientific studies clearly show that helping others boosts your happiness factor. So, why not go for it, lend a hand and put others first, and, in turn, become a happier person. Seems like a win/win to me! So, how can you make this goal of helping others a way of life and/or your credo. Here is a handy little app called Ripil that has some great (good Karma) ideas for doing something for someone (something) else. Give someone a hug today (my eldest daughter will love that!) Donate pet food to an animal shelter (my next daughter will love that!) Compliment a stranger (Everyone will love that!) In fact, I have started my own group within the app called The Find Group. Just search under groups and you will find it. The point of this group is to buy a complete stranger a cup of coffee. It doesn't have to be a Starbuck's Double Half Caffeinated Latte, the deli or street vendor variety is just fine. I am curious to hear your feedback about this little happiness experiment. Happiness!
