Want to be healthier? Help people

It’s a win-win, there’s long-term synergy, and you don’t have to think too far outside the box (just in case you are playing business bingo). There are several studies supporting the notion that helping others has a positive impact on the helper’s mental and physical health. According to Dr. Richard Davidson, “When we do things for ourselves, those experiences of positive emotions are more fleeting. They are dependent on external circumstances and when we engage in acts of generosity, those experiences of positive emotion may be more enduring and outlast the specific episode in which we are engaged.” It looks like Fernando got it wrong. So, don’t worry, help someone and be happy.
