Sometimes the best way to stop worrying about what’s going in your life, is to spend a little time focusing on others. For those too busy to squeeze in a trip to the local animal shelter or non-profit office, consider volunteering online. The United Nations’ award-winning internet hub can help match you to a human development program that needs your skills, or join forces with the World Volunteer Web to find the issue that’s right for you.
For those who feel themselves becoming disorganized with too much spare time, volunteering is an excellent, productive way to put those hours to use. Yet those who feel like there’s already too much going on, might feel like they just can’t afford to volunteer their time. It turns out, however, that your time is incredibly valuable to the organizations you help, to the tune of $20.85 per hour! Volunteering can also be an investment towards contacts and connections that pay off later. Consider looking for volunteer or internship positions at an organization for which you’d like to work, or a similar company in the field. Lastly, let your volunteer time be your fun time!
