Did you know that there is something that you can do that will help you to live longer? It doesn’t really cost anything to do it. Just a little bit of your time. Experts have studied about 950 sets of twins and discovered that the twins who volunteered during their lives, actually lived longer than those who didn’t. It makes sense to me. If you volunteer to help others, doing any number of things that are available to do, you receive a sense of satisfaction that enhances your life to the point of making your heart glad that you did it. Gladness and joy are the best medicines for a healthy heart and a wonderful sense of well-being. Everyone can help someone else. It may be a small gesture, like paying for someone’s meal, or buying groceries for someone in need. Volunteer firemen are needed in many places. You can volunteer at a hospital or nursing home or take in orphaned kittens. Check around where you live and see if you can volunteer. Even if it’s only a couple hours per month. You will be happier and you will live longer. It’s a proven fact.
