Instead of getting caught up in the whirlwind of the holiday season, consider volunteering. Spend some time thinking about how you and your family can support others and give back to those who are in need or less fortunate.
If you’re new to volunteering, consider the following:
- Choose a cause that you believe in and feel passionate about.
- Choose an opportunity that fits in with your schedule and skills.
- Once you have committed, be professional, courteous and cooperative.
Studies have shown that donating your time can help you relieve stress, increase happiness and give a sense of purpose. After all, giving back is the best way to spread holiday cheer.
