I think it's absolutely true that doing good things for others makes you feel better. Not just that you deserve a pat on the back, but helping others has an actual positive impact on your physical health. I'm all about feeling good in every possible way, so today I'm posting this article from Yahoo on the benefits of volunteering.
And now I'm going to search for my next 5K. I'll get in a good run, combat the effects of the holidays, and my race fees will benefit charity. Just thinking about running makes me feel like eating chocolate. I think I'll do that, too.
