A new study by Brigham Young University shows that an active social interaction life can help save your life.
The study showed that people with strong social connections with friends, family or co-workers have a 50% less chance of dying over a given amount of time than those without those close connections. Participants were monitored over an average of a 7.5 year period.
They decided that social interaction is just as important as not smoking or eating healthy.
The social interaction that the study found wasn’t even closely related to if the participants were living with someone or not. Only 19% of those that had roommates or lived with a spouse had a better survival rate.
Dr. Holt-Lunstad said that socialization should be monitored by a doctor, just like they check your blood pressure or ask how much you drink or smoke.
So spread the word and don’t be shy!
