To live well longer, you cannot go it alone. Build a support circle
Numerous studies have looked at the link between social life and longevity, and the connection is clear – people with strong social circles tend to live longer. Social intimacy not only impacts your mental well-being – there is evidence that it can improve your physical health too. One study even found that those with firm friendships were less likely to get colds. Taking the first step to boost your connections can be as simple as making one phone call each day.
