4 Ways Volunteering Can Change Your Life in Menopause

Of course we need to earn money in order to live a successful life, but there is something magical about volunteering. There are opportunities in every field, and most of them could use a helping hand. People with disabilities can still volunteer and work phones, update websites, or send out correspondence.

You may find that the life you have changed the most is your own. Here are 4 ways that volunteering can change your life in menopause:

Find the Right Opportunity

Make a list of your interests and look for those volunteer opportunities. Do you enjoy working with animals? The local animal shelter is always looking for volunteers to help feed, clean, and give affection to lonely or abandoned animals.

Do you enjoy making a difference in the lives of children? Be a Big Sister to a deserving child. This requires a commitment of a few hours twice a month. For example, you could play board games, work on arts and crafts, or visit the park playground.

Make New Friends

Volunteering puts you in contact with new friends, and it is often more fun to work as a group than by yourself. If you’re new to the community, new friends can put you in touch with local resources, and you may find that you enjoy getting together for social occasions.

Change Your Focus

It’s just human nature to complain about your problems, but when you change your focus to help others, it gives you a new perspective.  Your problems may not seem so big after helping a cancer patient, mentoring needy kids, or working with abandoned animals.

Explore Career Change

You may have worked at the same job for many years, and are ready for a change. Some volunteer opportunities require training. For example,  if you were interested in nursing, choose a setting such as a nursing home or hospital.
