Outcomes:

Staying socially active is an effective way to keep your brain healthy for longer. Connecting with others regularly can keep minds engaged and working well.

Being with friends and like-minded people is important because everyone needs a support network with which to share your feelings, worries and a good laugh. There is a much emotional strength to be gained from regular contact with others and realising that you can have as positive an impact on others’ lives as they do on yours.

Getting out and about with friends benefits every aspect of physical health. Staying active reduces your risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
