People volunteer for a spectrum of reasons, ranging from pure altruism (unselfishness) to the promise of political gain. Perceived rewards also vary from person to person, with some merely looking for new personal challenges and experiences.
Dr. Smith encourages patients to volunteer for a cause dear to them. While it feeds the soul to pitch in, good Samaritans are showered with a cascade of other benefits, including better health. Henry David Thoreau explained that “goodness is the only investment that never fails.”
Is this the right time for you to think about volunteering? Remember, everyone has something to offer. Take a look around our community and you’ll quickly find ways to pitch in. Ask us for more ideals about how volunteering can improve your life and your health.
