Apparently doing good to others does well for you. A new study just out says people who volunteer believe it has a positive effect on their health. In a study done by UnitedHealth Group and the Optum Institute, they found that 76 percent of volunteers say volunteering has made them feel healthier and 94 percent say it has improved their mood. Even more interesting, a quarter of volunteers say it has helped them manage a chronic illness over the past year. Participants reported in big numbers that volunteering helped them better control stress, gave them a sense of purpose and helped them take greater control over their health, benefitting not only their mind, but their body as well.
