There’s nothing like doing something to help others. Taking the time out of the daily hustle and bustle to volunteer may seem difficult, but the benefits of squeezing in a little volunteering can be huge! Here are some ideas to get started:
- Schedule it: Set aside the first Saturday of the month, for instance, for volunteering! By carving out a specific time to volunteer, you can make it something you look forward to and always have time to do.
- Combine socializing and volunteering: Make plans with friends or family to volunteer! Not only will you get to bond with someone you care about, but you’ll make a difference, too!
- Find a cause you care about: There’s a volunteer activity out there for every interest! Get involved in something that really moves you. Try walking dogs at an animal shelter, serving food at a soup kitchen, working to improve our community’s outdoor spaces, or helping fundraise for your favorite charity.
- Volunteer close to home: By getting involved in your community, volunteering will have a special meaning to you. Helping out at your kid’s school, working in a community garden, or assisting with a neighborhood project can be especially meaningful to you.
Volunteering is a great way to connect with your community. Being engaged in helping others will help make you feel more energized and optimistic, which is good for your heart health! Take the time to volunteer and you might receive just as much as you give.
