Maintaining both physical and mental wellness is crucial to healthy aging. This is why seniors who want to work on both aspects of their well-being should take advantage of activities that enable them to simultaneously be socially engaged and keep their bodies strong. According to Helpguide.org, research has provided evidence that volunteering can lead to health benefits including a reduced risk of depression and isolation. Older adults should consider giving their time to a good cause to experience these positive effects.
