something to think about


This morning in church, our pastor cited research that indicates we are just as likely to contract heart disease from social isolation as we are from smoking. Our well-being in every sense is dependent on our connectedness to others.

Since I work in a pub/ restaurant I think I interact socially often enough.. I am enjoying a day of social isolation!!

So true really, I enjoy being alone at times but thrive when I'm chatting or laughing or interacting with other people, it's why I chose nursing as a career initially.

I never thought of that but it makes sense. Loners can be very strange. We all need the interaction with others. That's what life is all about.

I completely agree...and just this afternoon sent an email to some friends I don't see nearly often enough so that we can fix that.
