It's official -- giving is better than receiving.
Acts of kindness such as serving meals at a homeless shelter, running to the pharmacy for a sick friend, or lending emotional support to a significant other may help people live longer, a recent study concluded. Do something kind and compassionate for someone else each day and you'll reap health benefits as well. Lend a hand to friends, family members, and neighbours when the need arises.
