If you could use a little more joy in your life, don’t wait to sign up because the simple act of volunteering promises you with instant happiness. Psychologists refer to it as a “Helper’s High,” an autonomic response similar to a “Runner’s High,” where your body releases endorphins - the feel-good chemical in the brain, during exercise. In you’ve ever done something nice for someone and the person was so happy that it made you feel happy too, you’ve experienced this incredible phenomenon. Even better, it was revealed that acts of kindness produce a ripple effect where those being helped are inspired to perform an act of kindness of their own.

Start a chain of kindness in your community. This August, join the Y and BUILD MORE THAN MUSCLE. Because in a world where you can be anything, above all, BE KIND.
