The Secret to Happiness Is Helping Others

Exercise
6 tips to living a life with purpose and meaning 

There is a Chinese saying that goes: “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.” For centuries, the greatest thinkers have suggested the same thing: Happiness is found in helping others

“For it is in giving that we receive — Saint Francis of Assisi 

The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity — Leo Tolstoy 

We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give — Winston Churchill 

Making money is a happiness; making other people happy is a super happiness — Nobel Peace Prize recipient Muhammad Yunus 

Giving back is as good for you as it is for those you are helping, because giving gives you purpose. When you have a purpose-driven life, you’re a happier person — Goldie Hawn 

And so we learn early: It is better to give than to receive. The venerable aphorism is drummed into our heads from our first slice of a shared birthday cake. But is there a deeper truth behind the truism? 

The resounding answer is yes. Scientific research provides compelling data to support the anecdotal evidence that giving is a powerful pathway to personal growth and lasting happiness. Through fMRI technology, we now know that giving activates the same parts of the brain that are stimulated by food and sex. Experiments show evidence that altruism is hardwired in the brain—and it’s pleasurable. Helping others may just be the secret to living a life that is not only happier but also healthier, wealthier, more productive, and meaningful. 

But it’s important to remember that giving doesn’t always feel great. The opposite could very well be true: Giving can make us feel depleted and taken advantage of. Here are some tips to that will help you give not until it hurts, but until it feels great: 

1. Find your passion 

Our passion should be the foundation for our giving. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving. It’s only natural that we will care about this and not so much about that, and that’s OK. It should not be simply a matter of choosing the right thing, but also a matter of choosing what is right for us. 

2. Give your time 

The gift of time is often more valuable to the receiver and more satisfying for the giver than the gift of money. We don’t all have the same amount of money, but we all do have time on our hands, and can give some of this time to help others—whether that means we devote our lifetimes to service, or just give a few hours each day or a few days a year. 

3. Give to organizations with transparent aims and results 

According to Harvard scientist Michael Norton, “Giving to a cause that specifies what they’re going to do with your money leads to more happiness than giving to an umbrella cause where you’re not so sure where your money is going.” 

4. Find ways to integrate your interests and skills with the needs of others 

“Selfless giving, in the absence of self-preservation instincts, easily becomes overwhelming,” says Adam Grant, author of Give & Take. It is important to be “otherish,” which he defines as being willing to give more than you receive, but still keeping your own interests in sight. 

5. Be proactive, not reactive 

We have all felt the dread that comes from being cajoled into giving, such as when friends ask us to donate to their fundraisers. In these cases, we are more likely to give to avoid humiliation rather than out of generosity and concern. This type of giving doesn’t lead to a warm glow feeling; more likely it will lead to resentment. Instead we should set aside time, think about our options, and find the best charity for our values. 

6. Don’t be guilt-tripped into giving 

I don’t want to discourage people from giving to good causes just because that doesn’t always cheer us up. If we gave only to get something back each time we gave, what a dreadful, opportunistic world this would be! Yet if we are feeling guilt-tripped into giving, chances are we will not be very committed over time to the cause. 

The key is to find the approach that fits us. When we do, then the more we give, the more we stand to gain purpose, meaning and happiness—all of the things that we look for in life but are so hard to find.

Sharing the Melodies of Love 2017


When we say "Christmas Season", the first thing that you'll think about as a child or an adult aside that it is the birthday of Jesus are gifts, right? It is that time of the year when gifts are the symbol of people’s love and care to other individuals around them. Here on the Philippines, it is the norm to see some children and adults doing caroling in front of different houses with the hope of getting a few gifts from the homeowners, but at IROG foundation, the group was doing the exact opposite because they do caroling not to get gifts, but to give gifts to different families especially for the people in need.

The IROG foundation along with different volunteers, employees, and other generous and compassionate individuals and groups have been doing this “Reverse Carolling” for many years now and each time they do it, it is certain that it will be a very memorable experience for each person involved. Their dedication can even travel extra miles just to deliver their gifts to people similar to what happened on December 19, 2017, but this time, something special happened because one of the famous news programs of GMA News TV, the “State of the Nation with Jessica Soho”, took interest in the organization’s compassionate activity and decided to cover their caroling story and share it to millions of Filipinos watching their newscast.



Even though the group heard the Christmas songs a lot of times they still decided to practice the songs to deliver them properly during the morning of December 19, then afternoon came, and the group was ready to go, carrying their gifts and their feelings of excitement and joy. They might not be composed of great singers, but they still sing the Christmas carols from the bottom of their hearts with full of smiles, and to their delight, the families truly appreciate them. And as each set of songs were finished, the group was truly excited each time they’re about to give the gifts to different persons and families at Tibag, Zambales. This is also the group’s way of telling them that whatever challenges life may bring, there are still people who are willing to provide a kind help and support.

This benevolent tradition started by the organization with the genuine objective of sharing love and care through gifts to different people and families will surely continue in the next Christmas seasons.
