EP 39: Being of Service
Play • 29 min

Today we are talking about service to others: Why do we do it? What gets in the way? We discuss the difference between proactive giving and being "voluntold" to give to a certain cause. We also cover intentional giving, protecting boundaries while giving back, and adopting a mindset of serving. We end our conversation by reviewing different ways that we can get involved in our communities and the advantages of giving back. 

Do try this at home:

  • Tap into your why. What are your values and how can you incorporate these into your acts of service so they are more meaningful and authentic to you?
  • Ask yourself, “How can I serve” and see what comes up. Thinking about service to others can de-center us and help us think about the bigger picture. 
  • Invite some ease around service. Service does not have to be hard or another source of resentment. Service can be enjoyable and it is ok to shift to a different type of activity where your gifts and talents are more in line with the need.
