A GREAT GROUP OF FRIENDS
Let's get connected!
The biggest issue for us all that as we get older our friendship base also shrinks and it is for ever harder to meet new friends. As we become more isolated we also become of the frame of mind to stay within our home. So we have to change our mindset from saying to ourselves that it is all too difficult to go out to the thinking “Let’s Give it a Go”. We maybe surprised as to the fun that we can have but also the number of new people we meet who are caught in the same situation as ourselves.
Life is not behind us, we are just in a different stage of life, and there is still plenty of living to do.
Walking every day as you age has numerous benefits for your physical and mental well-being. Here are some reasons why it's considered beneficial:
Crucial to overall wellbeing
While being physically active is important for our physical health, social connections contribute greatly to our mental and emotional well-being. Human beings are social creatures by nature, and we thrive when we feel connected to others.
Social connections provide numerous benefits. They can help combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, improve our mood, boost self-esteem, and reduce stress. When we interact with others, we often gain different perspectives, support, and a sense of belonging.
Strike a balance
In today's digital age, maintaining social connections can be easier in some ways, thanks to technology and social media. However, it's important to strike a balance between online and offline interactions. While online connections can be beneficial, face-to-face interactions offer deeper connections and a greater sense of intimacy and understanding.
