Giving Improves Your Health
Lend a helping hand to others and you'll enjoy a measurable improvement in your health. Scientists have found evidence that giving improves our health, boosts our energy, helps us avoid illness and even extends our lives. An Indiana University study of adults over 25, found that people who volunteered were more likely to feel happy and satisfied, possess high self esteem, have a sense of control over their lives and enjoy good health. And the more hours they volunteered, the better they felt. Scientists say we possess a deep instinct to help and to give and it has a profound impact on our health.
