20 Things you can do to contribute to society

Every once in a while, think about the ways you can give back and contribute to society. No matter how big or small your act of kindness is, it is guaranteed to boost the mental health and well-being of you and the people it impacts.

In our journals, we encourage you to reflect on your Contributions, whether it's the gifts and talents you can share with others or the time, money, or support you can donate, because it encourages you to embrace gratitude and be mindful of the communities you are a part of. And let's be honest, it feels great and makes you feel happy to do something nice for others.
