Volunteers who reported cherishing altruistic values or volunteered out of a desire to build social connections lived longer than those who did not volunteer, according to a new study from the University of Michigan. Those who reported volunteering for their own personal satisfaction had the same mortality rate as those who didn't volunteer at all.
Volunteering may lead to better health and a longer life — but only if you're pitching in to help for the right reasons.
