Love, Happiness and Friendship Can Serve You & Your Memory Well
Posted Jan 31 2013 8:00am
If you have fun and are part of life each day in the best of ways, you are doing more than just enjoying yourself.
Researchers from Rush University Medical Center in Chicago report that “Lonely people may have a greater risk of developing late-life dementia.”
In their study they found that those who described themselves as lonely were twice as likely to develop the kind of dementia associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Previous studies have suggested that people who are socially isolated or lack intellectual stimulation are at greater risk of Alzheimer’s as well.
So . . . don’t just sit there all alone!
Find and make new friends.
Join a hobby club doing something you enjoy.
Organize your time and life around loves, creativity and mind active “belonging.”
At the very least, volunteer
or get a few pets that keep you talking and loving and laughing!
