At Amway Volunteers, we believe that volunteering can help you experience lower blood pressure and a longer lifespan. Studies show that volunteering at more than one organization can lower your mortality rate.

When you volunteer, you become physically active and thus likely to experience reduced stress levels. As a result, you’ll feel physically healthier and easily manage a chronic health condition.

Helping others impacts your psychological wellbeing. It counteracts depression, stress, and anxiety, even as you connect with others and make contact with them regularly.

The support system you develop fights depression and loneliness feelings.
The same benefits apply when you volunteer to help with animals; you’ll experience reduced stress, better mood, and lower anxiety levels.

Generally, helping others is pleasurable due to the happiness hormones released into your blood system. You’ll become happier. Studies have also linked happiness to volunteering.

Amway Volunteers also helps people develop a sense of purpose in life through volunteering. Volunteer at organizations whose causes and purpose are close to your heart.

Join a cause that helps address a social problem you find meaningful to help you develop a sense of purpose. This further boosts your happiness levels. Give your life direction and meaning through volunteering despite your age or the story of your life.

We also motivate those with problems or undergoing grief to focus on helping others as a way of developing a deeper sense of perspective. Focusing on volunteering keeps you busy and deviates your mind from negative thoughts.
You may even find out through volunteering that your situation, problem, or experience isn’t as bad as that of others. This can help ease your grief or stress levels.

Your career can also benefit from volunteering. It helps you gain relevant experience in the increasingly competitive job market. Potential employers will see you as someone who takes initiative and is willing to get things done to make the world a better place.

Volunteering can also help you develop important job skills such as teamwork, communication, organization, problem-solving, and planning skills. Prove your skills in interviews through volunteer work.

Volunteer at your dream company; you may get a chance when one becomes available or develop the skills and experience that’ll land you a better job elsewhere. You may also develop connections you’ll find useful in the future.

You can also change your career or try something different through volunteer jobs. It allows you to try a new position without making long-term commitments.
