    Volunteering is really good for your mental health

    Found this on the internet - thought you guys would like it.

    Studies show that volunteering is really good for your health, so even if you make no $$$ from it, you'll feel better and be happier.

    Evidence of volunteerismís physical effects can be found in a recent study from Carnegie Mellon University, published this month in Psychology and Aging. Adults over age 50 who volunteered on a regular basis were less likely to develop high blood pressure than non-volunteers. High blood pressure is an important indicator of health because it contributes to heart disease, stroke, and premature death.
    The story is at the Harvard Medical School and stuff.

    Ahah, this is nonsense. I volunteered for more than two years and during this time I had headaches, nervous breakdowns and even depression. At first I thought that I was going crazy, but then I realized that the reason is the hungry children I see every day and that I help people only by 20 percent. All this made me morally less stable and I could no longer control my emotions. I was lucky that I started using Kratom because the effect was awesome. After I read the kratom strains guide, I realized that I should try this plant and I did not regret my decision. So you need a stable and strong psyche for volunteering.
