Social Wellness and Why it Matters

July is Social Wellness month, and after living through a worldwide pandemic, let’s take advantage of opportunities for socializing! It is so important to recognize the need for Social Wellness, especially for Older Americans who experienced so much isolation during the Covid pandemic. Studies have found that people who stay social tend to live longer, have healthier cardiovascular systems, and respond better to stress. Ways to practice social wellness can include planting in your neighborhood garden, joining a gym or exercise group, or going out for coffee with a friend. Let us know how you practice Social Wellness!
