There Are Many Benefits To Volunteering

Next » « Previous


Most people think of volunteering only as a way to help others, but the experience can also be of great personal benefit.

Volunteering can have a tremendous positive impact on your mental health and attitude. Volunterring can help find hope and healing through helping others and make you feel stronger and more in control. Research also indicates that altruistic behavior such as volunteering stimulates the same primitive reward center as sex and food.

Studies have also shown that volunteering promotes health and longevity, especially for people who might be socially isolated.

If you volunteer for your local or national disease specific non-profit organization you will help others with the same condition as yourself. In addition, you will be in a position to learn first hand about all the resources the organization offers. You might also be at an advantage if you need assistance from that organization.

And then there's the adage to consider: "You make a living by what you earn. You make a life by what you give."
