The Benefits of Giving

benefits-of-givingOne of the most rewarding things you can do in life is give back when you are able. Many people say that it is better to give than to receive.

However, this is only true if you have a heart that has the desire to give without expecting anything in return. This is not the case with all people in the world but there are many good benefits that you can get from giving back to people in need.

These benefits and unexpected results are more than worth the cost of giving and it may even cause you to give even more in the future.

What Do You Get When You Give?

The first thing that you get is the feeling of doing good for someone. This feeling is almost indescribable. It is something that many people cherish and a main reason people keep giving.

When you feel good about yourself and the things you have done, you feel more whole. Another positive side effect is good health.

That may feel like a stretch but a group in Canada conducted a study and those who volunteer and give back to their communities reported a better health status than those who did not.

Health Benefits

In addition to health and simply feeling good about yourself, volunteering allows you to develop new skills. You are opening up your heart and mind to new experiences as well as learning how to do them.

You will learn new things about the volunteer work as well as yourself. Another benefit is learning more about yourself and growing exponentially as a person.

You will see more of the negative side of the world or your local community but it will make you feel better and become more aware.

This new perspective is a great thing because you will see the world through new eyes. These eyes are more thankful and will want to give more back to the community later on.

Emotional Benefits

The last set of benefits come from realizing how much you are needed. Volunteers are always needed throughout the world. The first place to start is in your local community.

You will quickly find that an extra set of hands are a great help. You can be that person who is needed. This feeling of being needed in your community will help boost your self esteem and this will help your overall health.

How Can You Get Started

As you can see, helping out in your community does more than simply helping the community. It helps you out as a person. There is so much to gain from working in your community and giving back.

If you are able, you should find a volunteer network that you can join. You will get back so much more than you give. There are many organizations all over your neighborhood.

If you reside in the Phoenix area, you can look into an agency started by Bob Parsons of GoDaddy, the Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation.

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and make a difference in your community as well as your life. This list of benefits is just the start of what you can gain from giving back to those in need. Find out what you are capable of and start volunteering.

    I always feel happy when I give something or help needy people. Some times we have to help others without any cost. God always help those people who help others.
