Very interesting post. Reminds me of the old adage ‘laughter is the best medicine’. Engaging with friends, family and one’s community (through volunteering or other methods) leads to a sense of fulfillment in life which in turn seems like it decreases stress and promotes a general healthy feeling of well being.

I do a lot of volunteer work and I am also a Christian. I believe in good values- a big part of which is service.
I do believe that volunteering is good for the mind. My uncle was a pharmacology professor at Harvard and I value your healthy dialog topics. Thank you very much for letting me post.
