Volunteering As We Age
Yesterday, I spent three and a half hours at the local Senior''s Centre. I have been a member of the Board for more than fifteen years.
"Volunteering helps your health as well as the community. Match your interest with the needs of a museum, school or other organization. Volunteering fights depression by keeping you engaged, it gives you a sense of purpose and identity, which you might not be getting from a job. Volunteering keeps you physically, helping you stay fit, fighting depression, and giving you more energy."
