A research paper on Friday in the journal BMC Public Health says good deeds for others your mental health and your longevity. Researchers from the UK's University of Exeter 40 academic papers into the effects of volunteerism on our health. They that volunteers had lower rates of depression, an increased sense of well-, and a 22 per cent reduction in the chances of dying within the next seven years. Australians lead the way in volunteering, with an estimated 36 per cent of the population a hand.

Lead researcher Dr Suzanne Richards said: "Our systematic review that volunteering is with improvements in mental health, but more work is to whether volunteering is actually the cause." She : "It is still unclear whether biological and cultural factors and social resources that often associated with better health and survival are also associated with a willingness to in the first place."

First, it involves physical activity; second, the social connections we make to reduce our stress; and third, it us a deep sense of happiness.
