Weekly Wellness Insights

We all know the positive feeling we get when we help someone in need. According to Harvard Health Publications, that feeling is not just psychological. Volunteering may be good for both our bodies and minds. Helping other can make you feel more socially connected, which can reduce depression. Volunteering can also help lower blood pressure. One study found that adults over the age of 50 who volunteered were less likely to develop high blood pressure than those who did not volunteer. This is important because high blood pressure can contribute to heart disease, stroke and premature death.

 

April Health Observances

This week, we are highlighting National Volunteer Week. It was established in 1974 and has grown each year. This year, it runs April 23-29. Plan or attend an event to celebrate the impact volunteering has in your community and inspire others to serve. This is a great opportunity for team building with your coworkers. It also provides a chance to shine a light on the people and causes that inspire us to serve. The Daily Point of Light Award honors exceptional volunteers and celebrates the power individuals have to spark change and improve the world. Get inspired by previous Daily Point of Light winners, and thank and outstanding volunteer in your life.
