improve your love life

Between work and maintaining a social life, it can feel as if there’s no time left for personal development. If you aren’t currently pursuing endeavors that add a deeper meaning to your life, it may be affecting your love life. By engaging in these types of projects, you are more likely to exude confidence and appear more attractive to potential partners.

One of the easiest ways to boost your personal fulfillment is to volunteer for a cause you believe in. Here are a few ideas to try in your community, and — who knows — you might even improve your love life and meet your next date while volunteering.

4 Volunteering Ideas to Improve Your Love Life

1. Children’s Hospitals

By helping out at a children’s hospital, you provide opportunities for the kids to socialize and play, and hopefully minimize the effect hospitalization has on their mental health. If you’re feeling creative, wear a costume of a superhero or popular cartoon character while volunteering to bring a smile to their faces. Even one day a week can make a huge difference in the lives of the kids who are going through a difficult period. And, there’s a lot of fulfillment to be found in bringing joy to children’s lives.

2. Food Banks

According to Feeding America, 1 in 6 people struggles with hunger. Many food banks are almost entirely run by volunteers, with over 63,000 agencies, 66 percent of pantries, 41 percent of kitchen programs and 11 percent of shelter programs having no paid staff. By donating your time, you can work side by side with others from your area to ensure the families in your community don’t have to choose between paying their bills and putting food on the table. Imagine meeting the love of your life while volunteering at a food bank. What a great beginning to your relationship.

3. Nursing Homes

Many of the wisest and most experienced people in your community are living in a nursing home. While volunteering, you can spend the afternoon with an honored war veteran, have a conversation with someone who lived through the Great Depression, or play a board game with someone who watched the first super bowl. Although these homes have nurses on staff to care for the residents, volunteers provide a social environment and engage the minds of the elderly community. By planning dances, hosting bingo nights and initiating card games, you can play a huge role in making the nursing facility feel more like a home.

4. Animal Shelters

With approximately 7.6 million animals entering shelters nationwide every year, these organizations are always in need of assistance. By donating your time, you ensure that these animals receive the care and attention they deserve until they find a new home. Whether you’re answering emails and phone calls, helping plan a fundraising event or taking the dogs for a walk, there are many different ways you can lend a hand. There’s also a lot of room for professional development at animal shelters, so you could potentially receive a resume booster by spending your time learning and practicing the skills you want to apply to your career.
