My 31 personal habits to inspire, inform & support your lifestyle change
Having an active social life is one of the strongest predictors of #longevity and #good (physical & mental) health. Did you know that connecting with friends, family and other loved ones may also boost your brain health and lower your risk of dementia?
Studies say that with more social support People tend to live longer, with a stronger immune system, it boosts feelings of well-being and decreases feelings of #depression and last but not least they are less likely to develop dementia.
Social connectedness is one tenet of the #Bluezones – the geographic areas in which people have low rates of chronic disease and live longer than anywhere else (100+), along with habits as #downshifting, eating a plant based diet, and eating to 80% full.
🙋🏻♀️ I love to socialize through doing #activities together, that keep us both physically and cognitively engaging like easy stuff as walk and do groceries through my neighborhood (where I live now, but also when I am in my childhoods area or Munich where lived for over 12 years) and to stop and say hello to people I meet, I love visit or have a friend or family member over for coffee or tea. Sometimes we solve something together, sewing, painting, but it also can be playing cards or do a puzzle together. Giving flowers makes both sides always happy and volunteering is also a great thing I think. Visiting a museum I like to do with my husband, he sees totally different things and we chat about that!
🙋🏻♀️ Exercising with my customers makes me real #happy, to #inspire them and staying mindful of their goals, to challenge and to reward them! A must for me is to always keep positively communicating throughout the process.
💡 Let’s see, you maybe can see a friend by walking, swimming, or going to the gym together? Or who to call or visit today? I know someone 🥰 Key takeaway, keep your relationships the time or attention necessary to keep them healthy and happy!
Happy #MothersDay! @marjaheijman ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
