The world has bigger problems than anyone of us can imagine. It’s normal to think that such problems are beyond our control and you yourself cannot make a difference.
Certainly, one person cannot solve problems of the entire world. However, one thing you can do is to INSPIRE.
Be the change you wish to see in the world. Take a step towards betterment of others lives and your actions will inspire others to do the same.
Give away clothes you don’t wear, donate books to the library, give blankets to people living on the streets. Do not waste food. Help people in crisis. You can spare a few hours from your daily schedule and spend time with old age home people, read to the blinds, teach underprivileged children.
Carry your trash with you. Dispose of it in a trash can. Keep your house clean, keep your city clean, keep your country clean. It is every person’s responsibility. Just because a street is already dirty, you don’t have to make it dirtier.
Reduce Reuse Recycle
Well, this goes without saying. Try to recycle anything you can. You will be helping the environment a lot and in turn, you are helping yourself. Reduce the amount of plastic and other non-degradable waste you generate. Become as eco-friendly as possible. Always take a carry bag with you when you go shopping.
A smile can go a long way. Make people around you happy, people make up the world. Smiling at a stranger can make both you and them feel better. Being smiled at works the same way.
To make the world you inhabit a better place, you should first make the body you live in a better place. Avoid junk food, exercise at least thrice a week, and spend time with nature. Drink a lot of water and breathe deeply whenever you can. These things do wonders for your body and mind, and will make you want to care about all of the other mentioned things.
