Wanderlust is a mindfulness triathlon. It includes yoga, meditation, and running. Angel Sun represented UniversalGiving and volunteered at Wanderlust’s 5K on Sunday. Here is Angel’s take on the experience.
“It was cold and windy. I was preparing the water station at the halfway mark for the runners.
It felt great to have morning air and light exercise️ And I was moved by the runners’ spirit. Getting up early in the morning and run the marathon together. Definitely, want to do it again in the future!”
“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; They have the heart”-Elizabeth Andrew
Volunteering is a great way to practice mindfulness. Working for a cause alongside others helps keep us in the moment. It is psychologically shown that when we focus our attention outward and remain present we are much happier. Volunteering is a great way to clear our minds and simultaneously practice compassion and awareness.
