Socialise with others regularly
Loneliness, surprisingly, can take its toll on our mental and physical health. When experienced over time, it can instil feelings of anxiety and depression, which in turn, can weaken the immune system.
That’s why it’s so important that we remain socially active as we age. It can be all too easy to become isolated, but this does no wonders for our health.
By either looking online or heading out into your neighbourhood, you’ll likely find community events and/or volunteering opportunities that you can join. These are great options for retired individuals, since it’s an easy way to fill your time whilst offering the ideal opportunity to make new friends.
