Can simple acts of goodness everyday for 30 days, make you a happier person?
This is the question Mum and I have been asking since we started…
The Good Human Experiment is a 30 day pledge, to do good deed each and every day.
This is an online community that offers encouragements, prompts and ideas to practice goodness everyday! They have a great presence on facebook, email and instagram, where all the pics are from. This community is a wonderful supportive group that reminds you of the simple pleasures in life and the importance of sharing that with our neighbours.
It seems a simple enough quest yet sometimes it can be difficult some days, especially when it is rainy or you haven’t gone out and seen anyone.
The GHE is such a wonderful reminder to engage in the world around us, be kind and empathetic.
The GHE team offers a list of ideas, which I know my Mum likes, especially coming up to the 30 days.
Well, I am coming up to my 30 days of the GHE and I must, it was tough some days, to think of new ideas, to put myself out there, to be conscious of my good deeds. However, with that in mind I am so unbelievably happy that I engaged in this online pledge. Early enough in the pledge, I started to get a little addicted to my good deeds and I was constantly thinking about my next good deed!
It has been such a fun and beautiful experience, that has opened up my eyes to those around me and as well as my inner eye. It has reminded me to look inward to see how I am navigating the world.
Encouraging time for inner reflection so that we can better offer our gifts to others.
We all know that doing good things will make us feel good, but the GHE was a reminder and offered a boost when needed. I believe that even after I finish this month’s pledge I will continue on.
As GHE says…
Do good stuff. Feel all the feels.
