Healthier and Happier!
I began my 60-days cleanse at the times when COVID-19 was at its peak. Now, as the cases are declining, people have started to go out. This wellness cleanse program is not just about being healthy. It also leads you to a happier and better life. Socializing is crucial for human health. As they say, humans are social animals; we need to stay in touch with our community members.
Today I will talk about why being social is good for you and how you benefit from your social interactions.
How Do Social Contacts Affect Your Health?
You are the average or sum of your best five friends. These are the persons you spend your most time with. People in your circle affect your daily routine, and thus, your whole life. So be extra careful to hang around good people that have a positive philosophy on life. If you hang out with the people who inspire you, you begin to transform into the best version of yourself. Social motivation makes you do good things more often. It determines healthful habits and lifestyle goals. A supportive system at your back keeps your worries at bay.
Following social distancing protocols, working out with other people in an open area is a great thing to keep yourself motivated. You can go swimming, jogging, running, walking, dancing, jumping, hiking or anything you like. Since most of the gyms are closed, we do this program at a friend’s place. You can check out this video I posted on Facebook live while being social and working out. It is an excellent way to build your immunity stronger at these times instead of just relying on masks and keeping six feet distance.
Is Regular Exercise Important?
You may know that exercise is good for you, but to your surprise, even thirty minutes of daily physical activity boost your health to a significant extent. It not only controls your weight but also improves your mood and promotes sound sleep. It gives you a chance to do the things you love.
Research shows that lack of exercise is a significant cause of chronic diseases, including metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and hypertension. On the other hand, being active reduces your depression, anxiety, and stress levels and even makes you live longer than average life expectancy. That’s one of the many reasons I am such an advocate of being social and working-out.
