Finding purpose provides health benefits for seniors

In an article "To keep sharp, find purpose", Neal St. Anthony notes how that even through retirement people still need a purpose in life.  He cites Richard Leider, a management consultant and author of "Life Reimagined", who notes how the healthiest seniors are those who are the most engaged in something; ranging from tennis, volunteering or art.

It has been interesting to witness many seniors who are regular volunteers at Second Harvest Heartland.  Not only do they seem to benefit by making a positive difference for others less fortunate, they also reap the added perks of social interaction.
