If you’re like me you often seek new ways to stay healthier and happier. It should come as no surprise that helping others in our lives has been proven to help us build a stronger sense of self-confidence and a more positive outlook. For instance, did you know that volunteering actually helps you stave off depression? It’s true. Volunteering keeps you in regular contact with others and helps you develop a solid support system, which in turn protects you against bouts of depression.

If you don’t know where to start in terms of where and how to volunteer, I’d like to suggest VolunteerMatch.org, a wonderful group whose mission is to help match you with causes near you that you might find worthwhile. Check out this great group at http://www.volunteermatch.org/
