How Volunteering Can Be Your Chill Pill

Friday, Nov 1 2019

Stacey R. Dorenfeld

Stacey R. Dorenfeld’s “Purpose” column for Thrive Global proposes that volunteering could be your new “chill pill.” Stacey explores the seemingly contradictory view that a busier, more involved life pursuing your passion and purpose actually helps with relieving stress, anxiety and exhaustion. Stacey is currently Domestic Advocacy Chair, Hadassah Southern California, which recently introduced AB 2781 in the California Assembly, expanding access to infertility treatments.

In her column, Stacey describes how she quickly found herself immersed in the heart of Hadassah, meeting like-minded women and finding life-long friendships.

This article is part of Hadassah’s series on "Purpose" on Thrive Global, the new media platform founded by Arianna Huffington.
