Positive connections with family are every bit as powerful as adequate sleep and a good diet. Dozens of studies have shown that people who have satisfying relationships with family are happier, have fewer health problems, and live longer.
Researcher Dan Buettner advises the longest-living people in the world to value family relationships and realize these relationships impact not only your happiness but also your healthspan.
The top benefits of time with family:
- Decreased loneliness
- Stay emotionally engaged
- Brings back positive memories
- Helps seniors feel fulfilled, comforted, and loved
Many seniors feel peace of mind knowing that family is there for them (regardless of physical distance). It’s comforting to know that you have people in your corner who want the best things possible for you.
