Seek out a companion

Spending too much time on your own can make you sick. Studies show that people who are socially isolated and experience feelings of loneliness are at an increased risk for stroke, heart attack, angina and death from heart disease. The effects are equally bad for women and men. While there are many benefits from spending quality time by yourself, you shouldn’t overdo it. So if your social life has come to a grinding halt, make an effort to bolster your health, by seeking out the companionship of others.
