Have You Thought Of Volunteering?????

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

As you age, volunteering can:

a. Decrease depression
b. Improve your sex life
c. Both of the above

Answer: c. It's well established that middle-aged and older people who spend time volunteering are less prone to depression, but it was a pleasant surprise when University of Pittsburgh researchers found that a sense of "higher purpose" in life, often achieved through volunteering, led women to report more enjoyable sex lives.

I volunteer for American Girl and also read to Pre-K students...............haven't noticed any change yet............ emoticon
