We talk about why you should volunteer and how its beneficial for your health.
You can volunteer at one of the many charities in the world. I love to volunteer to help the homeless as it is sad that they are not being looked after properly. In Melbourne we see a lot of homeless people on the streets especially during Christmas. The homeless usually have some sort of mental health problem as they have been lonely for some time. During Christmas they have no food and are lonely. Every year the charities put on Christmas day luncheons for them and they get a lot of fun out of that
Volunteering makes us happy as we see that the other person is happy. And they are being looked after.
Volunteering is so much fun as you get to meet new people and later on down the track you might end up getting a job with the organisation that you volunteered for. If not they can give you a reference.
Happy people equals healthy people. The more depressed you are, the more unhealthy you would be. Depressed people turn to comfort eating and drinking just to suppress their emotions. Depressed people feel more lonely especially during Christmas.
Do volunteer if you have the time. Seek advertise volunteer jobs on a regular basis.
