Help Yourself by Helping Others

If you want to cope better with stress, serve others! Stress management and resilience can be enhanced by connecting with others in need. Additionally, you experience more empathy, compassion and solidarity with others. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

  • September 11th is the National Day of Service, check around your community for service activities going on that day
  • Adopt a highway Visit a senior citizen home
  • Donate food, used clothing and/or toys to a homeless shelter
  • Mow your neighbor’s lawn

So, if you want to manage stress better and be more resilient, think about giving back by helping others in need. You’ll probably get more than you can possibly give if you do so. And you’ll likely be happier to boot.
