Making Friends for Better Health
When it comes to maintaining our health, we tend to automatically think of the most common solutions like diet and exercise. But surprisingly, as we age, our well-being is heavily dependent on our level of socialization.
From better sleep and less stress to a clearer mind, there are countless benefits to a more active social life, but what might be more surprising is the role it plays in our cognitive state.
Consistent social interactions and friendships can help to prevent declines in memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and various forms of dementia. One study found that cognitive abilities declined 70% more slowly in individuals who had frequent social connections compared to those who had little social contact with others.
Are you or your loved one getting enough social activity? Visiting the Senior Social Center or volunteering with RSVP is two easy ways one can make sure they are getting the socialization needed to live the long happy, healthy life they want.
