“Volunteering is an activity that could add years to your life. A study of 10,000 people, published in the journal Health Psychology, found that those who regularly volunteer are less likely to die than nonvolunteers. And people who give back for the “right reasons” (e.g. to help others, not to feel better about themselves) stay alive the longest.”
So why don’t you give the Deerfield Women’s Club a try. You might even live longer.
