Did you know that having someone who has your back is highly protective for your long-term health? This could be a friend, a family member, a partner, roommate or anyone who you feel you can trust and talk to. Loneliness and social isolation are risk factors for your health and can matter more than your cholesterol and blood pressure! Research shows that feeling socially connected and supported is a key factor in overall health and wellbeing no matter what age we are.
Did You Know:
Set a small, doable social connection goal from the Ideas to get Get Started list, or choose one of your own. Remember, the more specific, measurable and realistic your goal is, the more likely you are to succeed!
For example, if your social activity goal is to have one social outing for 30 minutes each week, make it more specific by deciding exactly which day, what time, and with whom.
Invitation: We invite you to try out The Wellness App to track your goal over the next 4 weeks. No goal is too small and The Wellness App will encourage you along the way!
