There’s no need to travel far and wide in search of charity work – there are bound to be many in need right where you are, locally. Find your local orphanage, and pay the kids a visit. Find the local school for kids with disabilities and read them a book. Find the local nursing home and bake the old people a cake for tea.

This is a very important thing to learn to do. In your journey of self-improvement, you can’t afford to have burnout and the recovery from one is slow and painful.

Those you turn down have to understand that you don’t have the time in your day for something or maybe the energy to do it. Be firm, but if there is an alternative, like another day or another task you can help with, offer to help with that instead. As long as you know your limits and others do, too!
