"Why It’s More Important Than Ever To Grow Your Friend Circle And Boost Your Health After 40"

It is known that more than 50% of Americans over the age of 40 are at risk for serious medical conditions like stroke and heart disease.

We also know that meaningful relationships are one of the key indicators of happiness and that these bonds have been scientifically linked to lower blood pressure, BMI, and inflammation.

Here are 5 easy ways you can grow your friend circle and see the benefits of improved health:

  1. Be A Great Listener – Ever heard the saying “we have two ears and one mouth for a reason”? Ask people questions about themselves and show a genuine interest in getting to know them better.
  2. Attend Parties & Events – Put yourself out there and show some vulnerability by attending parties, events, or joining organizations! If you are at the same event, you likely share a common interest – start from there!
  3. Take Initiative – Don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation or ask someone to an outing – even if you are an introvert!
  4. Smile 🙂 – People may not always remember what you SAY, but they will always remember how you made them FEEL. A smile can be very disarming and naturally draws people to you because they feel more comfortable.
  5. Help Other People – If you knew a parent, spouse or sibling was suffering with a painful condition like back pain, or sciatica you would probably want to help! You might even start by thinking of a solution – perhaps something that helped you in the past. You may even wonder if WE CAN HELP!

The next time you hear someone mention their sore back or achy knees – show them you care by offering them a well-intentioned kick in the butt! Share your story with them about what it felt like to be in miserable pain, not able to enjoy life the way you wanted and how we helped you turn things around!
