Whether it’s a one-off or something you do on a regular basis, volunteering is good all round. As well as making a positive contribution to the happiness of others, it’s a great way to meet people, get the most out of your local area and to increase your own happiness and wellbeing. Science shows that we can get as much out of volunteering as the people we are giving our time for or to. Giving to others through volunteering and in other ways has been associated with reduced depression and anxiety and increased personal well being and happiness. Indeed one researcher described the ‘helper’s high’. What’s more, volunteering is one way to actively participate in social and community life, which is also strongly associated with happiness and life satisfaction.
