Sometimes they can drive us crazy, but our friends and family are also a huge support and benefit to us. Setting aside time to be with those who value and honor us helps balance our daily interactions with our work environment.
Spending time with family and friends can:
- extend your life
- keep you healthier
- prevent loneliness and increase self-worth
- improve your eating habits
- moderate your behavior
- lower stress
- spread happiness
How I add this to my life: I have a weekly walking partner and try to set up a time each week to spend time with my daughter and her son. Sometimes, I cook for them and it helps me have a balanced, complete meal, which I might not do when I am eating alone.
