According to the Mayo Clinic spending quality time with friends and family can have a direct impact on your health and wellbeing. We all know that good friends and family are always there to help you celebrate all the successes and happy moments in your life. As well as support you when times get rough and you need a shoulder to lean on. But socializing with family and friends also prevents isolation and loneliness while giving you companionship. Other benefits include
-Increasing your sense of belonging and purpose -Boosts happiness while reducing stress
-Improves your self confidence and self worth
-Helps you get through traumas such as divorce, serious illness, losing a job, or a death of someone you love.
-Encourage you to change unhealthy habits like excessive drinking or lack of exercise.
Friends and family play a huge role in your overall health. Maintaining these meaningful relationships will help you live longer. So take some time to gather around those you love. Don’t wait for a holiday if you can help it. Make those moments meaningful with good old fashioned quality time. So when you are not with them those happy moments last. Part of the candle line that I truly enjoy are those candles that invoked a happy memory, place, or time. A fragrance can help bring you back to those moments and make the memories last.
