Good deeds can improve your health

9th September 2010

Scientists have suggested that doing good deeds for others can be good for your health.

The study at the University of Sussex’s Mindlab measured stress levels and other emotions of a group of men and women who performed good deeds for nine days and found that being more considerate could reduce stress levels. The research, commissioned by insurance firm Simplyhealth, also found that good deeds had a positive chain reaction effect, with beneficiaries of the deeds feeling more motivated to help others themselves.
