Friday Tidbit: The Pursuit of Happiness
- Posted by Dejan Pekic BCom DipFP CFP GAICD, Senior Financial Planner
According to Harvard University research, the secret to feeling so much happier for adults over the age of 50 is to regularly volunteer and help others.
It was found that volunteering elevates contentment and your sense of well being.
Further, individuals who routinely help other people had lower overall risk of death, diminished odds of developing health complications and higher levels of physical activity.
Now we have proof, humans are social creatures and so our minds and bodies are rewarded when we give to others.
The secret to happiness is GIVING.
