It may not always feel like it, but studies show that spending time with family can help reduce stress and anxiety and lead to a healthier lifestyle.
Friendships too can have a major impact on our health and well-being. Friends help us celebrate the good times and provide support in the bad times. Staying connected is the key. In difficult times reaching out to our family and friends staves off feelings of isolation and loneliness and provides us with much needed companionship.
These valuable connections increase our sense of belonging and purpose, reduce stress and boost our happiness. They increase our self-confidence and self-worth. (Mayo Clinic)
Mother’s Day provides an opportunity to create special moments for those who have made an impact on our lives. Gifts, acknowledgements and remembrances are ways to express our gratitude.
This month create special moments and let those you care about share in the laughter and love.
