Just like our bodies and minds go through changes, so do our social circles. You may miss workplace camaraderie or maybe the card club no longer meets. Some of your friends may no longer be with you.
Socialization is an important aspect of living a healthy, fulfilled life. People who maintain close friendships and find other ways to interact socially live longer than those who become isolated, according to The University of Rochester Medical Center. Relationships and interactions even boost your immune system and help protect against illness.
Just like making childhood friends or business connections, you must take time and initiative during all stages of life to maintain relationships and expand your social circle.
