Living Well By Giving Back
For many of us, the beginning of a new year is a time for making plans to live a healthier life. If you’re looking for a way to get active, be more socially connected, feel better about yourself and help your neighbors improve their well-being, consider making a resolution to volunteer at the Y!
Many people join the Y to improve their health and well-being, but when they give back and support their neighbors, they enhance their total wellness in spirit, mind and body.
Research has shown that people who volunteer may experience these benefits:
• A greater sense of purpose and meaning
• Lower levels of depression
• Improved mood and self-esteem
• Less stress and better time management
• Better heart health
At the Y, we’re more than just a gym—we’re a volunteer-led charity dedicated to strengthening the foundations of community. Whether through coaching youth sports, helping someone learn job skills or participating in programs, you can find a variety of volunteer opportunities that match your talents and interests.
