Weekly Health Tips

VOLUNTEERING HELPS MENTAL HEALTH

Posted: 05.17.2017
Why volunteer? Because it's good for your community and it's good for you! Many studies have reported the benefits of volunteering, and they're not just social. Those who volunteer experience better health, increased longevity, higher functional ability, less depression and reduced incidence of heart disease. New research suggests it's particularly beneficial to the health and well-being of seniors. The volunteering threshold to reach to experience the benefits seems to be about two hours per week. Volunteering can also give you a sense of accomplishment and purpose, and allay feelings of loneliness.
