There is such a thing as “helper’s high” 🧠

Updated: Sep 13, 2020

Today I volunteered at my local zoo, something for which I am very passionate. 🦁

In a literature review written by Stephen Post in The International Journal of Person Centered Medicine (Vol. 1, No. 4, pp. 814-829), it is shown that volunteering can induce a state called “helper’s high”, where volunteers felt a state of euphoria when they began volunteering.

Aristotle once said: “the essence of life is to serve others and do good.”

This had me thinking… this information can also apply to data science as a data scientist’s passion is to do good by solving problems which will hopefully help others.

Happy Learning!!
