3) Helping   others  can enhance our feelings of joyfulness, emotional resilience, and  happiness, and can reduce the unhealthy sense of isolation  and loneliness.

4)   we  can receive  an  increased sense of self-worth, greater happiness, and optimism, as well as a decrease in feelings of helplessness and depression.  when these  things  are   achieved  then we  are healthier.

5) It  can  strengthen our immune  system

6)  when  we  help  someone or  perform an  act of  kindness   we  feel euphoria, followed by a long period of   feeling  calm,  this  is often creates  a “high  by helping  someone  else,”   which  releases the body’s natural painkillers,   called  endorphins. This initial rush is then followed by a longer-lasting period of improved emotional well-being.

7)  we  can have a decrease in both the intensity as  well as  our  awareness of physical pain.  which is  alway a  good  thing.
