Selflessness may be the best way to help ourselves during adolescence. That's according to new research conducted at the University of Houston, led by Kevin Lanza, PhD.
Lanza's research team found that young children and adolescents who volunteer tend to feel better both mentally and physically than many of their peers who do not volunteer.
The study also found that kids and adolescents who volunteered over the past year were in better physical health, had a more positive outlook on life, and were less likely to exhibit anxiety, depression, or behavioral problems compared to others who did not volunteer.
