Helping others deal with stress

“Scientific studies confirm that helping others treats stress. Experts in the field of psychology confirm that helping others relieves nervousness, since it stimulates the secretion of the hormone endorphins; hormones that help to stimulate the feeling of being psychologically relaxed and give the feeling of ecstasy. The former director of the International Institute for Health Promotion in the U.S., Alan Leeks, said that helping others reduces the severity of nervous stress, since the individual’s help to others reduces one from thinking of his personal concerns and problems; so then he feels psychologically comfortable.”
