Helping others in times of stress (like the holiday season) can help your well being. Why? The researchers do not know but the answer may involve the same biological mechanisms that drive parents to care for their children—such as the neurohormone oxytocin—which “can reduce certain physical responses to stress.”

Help out in your community and do good for others and yourself! Who need help around you today? Take time to do one good deed.
