18. To improve your health
Research has demonstrated that stressful living causes excess weight gain and has other adverse effects on your health. By building your self-esteem, your confidence, your love, and your joy, you will discover how to live a less stressful life and overcome unhealthy habits. We have all heard that the buildup of stress can be unhealthy, to the point of being life-threatening. When you feel better about yourself and are truly grateful for what you have, you are less likely to eat the wrong foods or have too much to drink. When your heart is full, you do not need much in order to be fulfilled, and you will be less likely to engage in unhealthy behaviors. Research has also shown that when you are more positive, it actually helps lower your blood pressure and strengthen your body in many other ways. If you volunteer regularly, you will be on a path to living a less stressful life and having a healthier mind and body because of it.
