Volunteering & Social Events Can Extend Lifespan

Religious people may live on average four years longer compared to their atheist peers, a study of obituaries in the US has found. The four-year boost — found in an analysis of over 1,000 obits from around the US — was calculated after taking into account the sex and marital status of those who died, two factors that have strong effects on lifespan“Religious affiliation had nearly as strong an effect on longevity as gender does, which is a matter of years of life,” said Laura Wallace, a doctoral student at The Ohio State University. The study, published in ‘ #Social #Psychological and #Personality #Science’, found that part of the reason for the boost in #longevity came from the fact that religiously affiliated #people also #volunteered and belonged to #social #organisations, which previous #research has linked to #living #longer.

Altruistic Volunteering

HEEALS Volunteer Abroad Program ,INDIA
While most people volunteer in order to help others, they’ve likely experienced positive feelings or even a “helper’s high” at the same time. Who volunteered with some regularity lived longer, but only if their intentions were truly altruistic. In other words, they had to be volunteering to help others—not to make themselves feel better.

Great thing to see young kids volunteering and learning to give something of them. Start your children young. Teach them to contribute and help others. It helps a child build confidence, humility, skills and a good attitude about life. Yes, it contributes to a child in many of the same ways as it contributes to an adult.

 

Most people complain about government spending and how government gets into too many areas of our lives where they don’t belong. A large way we can reduce government spending and involvement in our lives is by volunteering. If every individual volunteered just an hour a week, we could replace lakhs of Rupess  spent on social issues with our services.

 

Positive Impact – Be Part of the Solution

Making the world a better place is actually very simple. Participate in the solution, not the problem. You don’t need to give much of your time to make a positive impact. A few hours each month can make the life of someone much better and make a world a better place.

 

Humble Yourself

Seeing life through others’ eyes can be a bit humbling. When life gets a little tough, volunteering can help you see life may be better then you thought. It also helps take your mind off your own problems. It adds perspective and helps solve personal issues.
