My Doctor said – it's not just about "me"

Spending more time with the people you care about will do more for your health than you’d expect.

You should never try to go it alone when it comes to your health. Adults with strong social support networks reduce their risk of developing a variety of health issues.
Some of which include:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Cognitive Function Deterioration
  • Addiction
  • Arterial Inflammation
Regularly engaging with friends, family and your community can have tremendous health benefits. That goes for both your body and your mind. There are numerous physical and mental health issues that can be caused or made worse by voluntary isolation.

So get out and spend some time with the people you care about.  It can’t hurt you!
