Leko Durda Shares Insights Into Volunteering Your Way to Health: Feel Good While Doing Good

Written by Jimmy Rustling

Leko Durda says that we all know the importance of healthy habits like eating right and exercising regularly. But did you know that volunteering can also be a powerful tool for boosting your physical and mental well-being?  That’s right – giving back to your community can be a recipe for a healthier you!

Stress Less, Live Longer:

Let’s face it: life can be stressful. But volunteering can be a fantastic stress reliever.  Focusing on helping others takes your mind off your worries, promoting calmness and relaxation. Studies have even shown that regular volunteering can lead to lower blood pressure and a reduced risk of depression.

Move It or Lose It (the Stress, That Is):

Many volunteer opportunities involve physical activity, from gardening at a community center to helping with a charity walk/run. These activities not only help you stay fit but also pump up your feel-good endorphins, further reducing stress and boosting your mood.

Social Benefits:

Leko Durda explains that humans are social creatures, and volunteering provides a chance to connect with others and build meaningful relationships. This social interaction combats feelings of isolation and loneliness, which can negatively impact physical and mental health.

Purpose Power:

Volunteering gives you a sense of purpose and accomplishment.  Knowing that you’re making a positive difference in the lives of others is incredibly rewarding. This boost in self-esteem and feeling of belonging can significantly improve your overall well-being.

Finding Your Fit:

The beauty of volunteering is the vast array of opportunities available.  No matter your interests or abilities, there’s a cause that needs your help.  Love animals? Volunteer at a shelter.  Crafty? Offer your skills to a community art program.  Tech-savvy? Help non-profits with their social media presence.

Start Volunteering Today

There’s no time like the present to reap the health benefits of volunteering.  Search online for volunteer opportunities in your area, or reach out to local organizations you care about.  Remember, even a small amount of time can make a big difference – for you and your community!

Leko Durda suggests that volunteering with friends or colleagues can add a layer of social fun and accountability to your experience.

So lace up your shoes, open your heart, and volunteer your way to a healthier, happier you!
