When you think about volunteering, the first thing that probably comes to mind is how volunteers help make a difference for the community, whether that means collecting food for a food bank, helping young learners master reading and math, providing companionship for older neighbors, or cleaning up a local waterway.
What you might not realize is that it also benefits the people who do the volunteer work. A recent university study found that people over 50 who were regular volunteers were less likely to be diagnosed with high blood pressure, which lowers the risk of other health problems including heart disease and stroke.
