Give | show your human spirit
Participation in social and community life has attracted a lot of attention in the field of wellbeing research. Individuals who give, and report a greater interest in helping others or in helping the environment are more likely to rate themselves as happy. Research into actions for promoting happiness has shown that performing acts of kindness often associates with an increased sense of wellbeing.
By volunteering your time, joining a community or conservation group may help you to see yourself, and your happiness linked to the wider community. It can be incredibly rewarding and create connections with new people and the world around you.
Longer term we ourselves may have opportunities for volunteers and befrienders. If you yourself enjoy nature and the great outdoors and have some spare time and would like to express an interest in befriending or volunteering with us then please do get in touch via our Contact Us page.
(This Way to Wellbeing is available to be sponsored – Does your business promote people to ‘give’ or support the human ‘spirit’ of volunteering?)
