* Collaborative post 

There are over seven billion people living on this planet, but that doesn’t that you can’t do you bit to help make it a better place. Most of us want to do what we can to live well, for the benefit of ourselves and others, so keep reading to find out what you can do to have a  positive impact on the world.

1. Do your bit for a good cause

The truth is, there is a lot going on in the world right now, especially in countries that have been affected by war and poverty, and being so far away from the problem itself can leave you feeling helpless and frustrated at the fact you can’t offer your support to those who need it most. The good news is, there are a number of charity organisations that give you the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable men, women and children all over the globe.

You can do your bit for charity in a number of ways. For example, one of the quickest and most efficient ways is by making a monetary contribution. Regardless of whether you can afford to give a little or a lot, your donation can have a huge impact. You could make a one-off payment, sign up to contribute on a regular basis or, if you’re Muslim, you could choose to make a donation by giving Zakat. This is an act of worship that involves giving a certain percentage of your wealth to help a good cause. To work out how much money you should give, you can find special Zakat calculators online.

Aside from giving money, you could donate your unwanted belongings to your local charity shop, give up your time volunteering for a charitable project or you could sign up to or host your own fundraising event. Whatever you decide to do, giving to charity is a great way to help make the world a much better place.

2. Do something kind for someone else

As the saying goes, ‘love is what makes the world goes round’, so why not spread some happiness to play your part in making the world a more positive place to be? From offering to pick up groceries for your elderly next door neighbour to helping a colleague on a work project, there are a plethora of kind, thoughtful things you can do to put a smile on someone else’s face. Although it might not seem like a big deal to you, going out of your way to help another person could lift their spirits and make their life a little easier. What’s more, your acts of kindness might inspire others to do the same.

3. Look after the environment

From global warming to pollution, there are a number of serious problems that are currently having a huge impact on the world. Although these issues might not affect you directly right now, they could affect future generations, so it’s important that we do what we can to look after and preserve the planet we live on.

There are a few small changes you can make to your day-to-day routine that could help save our world. For example, you could recycle more, swap your light bulbs for more energy-efficient versions or make a conscious effort to turn off your electronics when you’re not using them. By putting these small yet effective tips into practice, you could have a positive influence on the environment, making the world a healthier, happier place.
