Volunteering is good for others…and your health! Studies show that people who volunteer are less likely to develop high blood pressure and heart disease. In addition to reducing depression and having lower mortality rates, people who volunteer experience an overall greater sense of satisfaction.*
Gain some perspective and feel-good emotions by devoting some of your free time to volunteer work. Whether you donate time at your local hospital, join a community cleanup crew or even volunteer at a pet humane society, your kind efforts will benefit both your community and your health.
Express your love today!
