Feel Whole Challenge Day 13: Volunteer

Volunteering in your community is a great way to connect with your friends and neighbors, and it’s a great way to give back. Many of us expect that volunteering takes a lot of time and requires some sort of required skill or labor, but that’s not always the case.

You can give back to your community while doing something you love. You also do not have to wait for some sort of organized volunteer opportunity—you can offer your services at any time. Each person has unique interests and talents that allow us to serve our community in a significant way. Which of your talents can you use to help someone in need?

I love decorating. It’s my passion. I enjoy helping others style and decorate their homes as well. It’s a treat for me to answer design questions for friends and neighbors. It’s an honor to use my decorating talents to give back. I’ve offered my hands and my design eye to design spaces for non-profit organizations in my community.

What are your passions?

Perhaps you love sports. Could you volunteer to coach a youth sports team? Are you passionate about cooking? Could you offer to cook meals for someone in need?
