Good deeds could be anything from:

·         Carol singing to raise money for a charity

·         Baking cookies to give out at school

·         Anonymously donating your change jar to a good cause

·         Helping your neighbour put up their Christmas lights

·         Donating towels to the RSPCA centres

It can be absolutely anything and you’ll know when you’ve done a good deed as you’ll get that warm fuzzy feeling inside you – a small act of kindness can make a real difference.

It’s a classic tale, but the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the mean-spirited man who realises the joy of good deeds, shows how a selfish act can bring happiness to all.

So what is the science behind a good deed? Researchers have looked at the so-called helper’s high and its effects on the human body and found the wish to perform good deeds will improve our health, even our longevity. A study has found that people who carry out good deeds, experience less anger and stress and feel more positive and self-confident suggesting there is scientific truth to the old adage that when we help others, we also help ourselves.
