Your Tuesday Village Update #64
        
July 13, 2021         
 

Dear Villagers,

Treasure Theman online article recommended by member Lidy de Hollander, 
outlines the importance of friendships with respect to longevity. We share the following excerpt to make the case that being an active Villager is very good for your health!

A 2010 study about mortality rates following chronic issues "...concluded that being within a supportive social network reduced the risk of mortality by 50 per cent. That places it on a par with quitting smoking, and of more influence than maintaining a healthy BMI measure. Since Holt-Lunstad and colleagues reported their findings, study after study has reinforced this conclusion, to the extent that we can now argue that the nature of your social network, and the strength and health of the relationships within it, is the biggest single factor influencing your health, happiness and longevity. They are your survival."
