Serving others is actually good for your health.
A survey conducted at 44 major universities reveals that giving, protects your overall health twice as much as an aspirin protects your heart against disease.
Dr Stephen Post, who conducted the survey, says, ‘Giving is the most potent force on the planet and will protect your whole life.’
The benefits of compassion to your physical health are so strong that if compassion wasn’t free, pharmaceutical companies would herald the discovery of a stupendous new drug called ‘give back’ instead of Prozac.’
You can give without loving, but you can’t love without giving.
Your time, talent and treasure are to be shared with others. When you refuse, you’re neither happy, holy nor healthy.
