Volunteer for Good Health

By Donna Stark

If you think volunteering is one of the ways you can support your local community and make an immeasurable difference in the lives of other people, you wouldn't be wrong. But while those aspects are certainly true, there is more to volunteering. It is also a way to improve your very own physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Whether you are looking for a short-term opportunity or a long-term commitment, you can be sure to get just as much out of it as the people you are helping.

Volunteer for Your Health

Using your time to help others can reduce stress, combat feelings of loneliness, stimulate your mind, provide a sense of purpose, and get your body moving! So, what do you think? Are you ready to sign up? Here are some suggestions on how you can volunteer your time.

Help Out at a Community Event

If your schedule is packed from morning until night every day, you may find it challenging to commit a lot of your time to others. And if that's the case, your best bet is to offer your help at a monthly or yearly community event. Head on over to your town's community center and ask to see their calendar. Find an event you are interested in and sign up!

Run for a Committee Position

A great way to directly impact your town's future is to serve on a local board or committee. From economic development to town improvements to hospital fundraising, there is sure to be something that tickles your fancy. Just be sure to run for a position that you are actually interested in because if you don't, you could be doing a huge disservice to yourself and others.

Feed the Hungry

Food banks, homeless shelters, and Meals on Wheels programs are always looking for volunteers, so if that is something that interests you, give them a call. Or you can also check out their needs on their website to see if you would be a good fit and to sign up to help.

Dive Into Books

If you love books and reading to young children, your local library could be the perfect place for you to land. Volunteering at the library is a great way to fuel your passion while serving the community and interacting with people of all ages. Plus, it's a great way to escape all the other "noise" of the world.

Do What You Love and Help Others in the Process

The hardest part about volunteering is choosing what to do because there are so many charities and organizations that need help. Because of this, it is very important to take your time and choose wisely. Finding the opportunity that fits your interests and your schedule is key to loving what you are doing!
