What is more beautiful than helping others? Here are some ways to get out there and make the world beautiful, just like you. And, in the process of doing good, you’ll feel better and more beautiful, too. It’s a gorgeous cycle! Giving back not only helps the world, but it also helps us by releasing the feel-good hormone oxytocin, which elevates our mood. The knowledge that we are making a difference in the world also provides us with a sense of purpose and meaning. In fact, a Harvard School of Public Health study revealed that people who volunteer spend less time in hospitals. So, volunteering might also just save your life!
