Sure, we know that volunteering makes us feel good. Did you know that, when you volunteer, you are improving your life and maybe even your health?
The benefits of volunteering are countless. But there are social, emotional, physical, and professional perks.
01. Build bonds, create friends
Volunteering creates stronger bonds between friends, family, and coworkers. People build closer relationships, better connections, and more powerful attachments to people when they work together.
02. Volunteering Is Fun!
It is incredible to think that one person’s efforts can change the life of someone else somewhere in the world. However, the best part, and often overlooked is that volunteering is just plain fun.
03. Burns Stubborn Belly Fat
Walking around a shelter or food bank, playing with kids at the local YMCA, or visiting with elderly patients at a neighborhood nursing home all require that you do more than sitting at a desk or on a couch.
