STRESS---LONELINESS...they work hand-in-glove.

One of the greatest health risk factors is LONELINESS!

LONELY PEOPLE have a weaker immune system, higher blood pressure, more illnesses and lower life expectancy conversely, people who have a strong support network of friends and family have a greater health and life expectancy.

It's great to have social support but let's look at the other side of the coin...STRESS, is stress making you sick?  Are you stressed-out because you're lonely?  You don't have to be bored and lonely, REACH OUT, VOLUNTEER.  To have a friend, you have to be a friend.

STRESS is a natural part of life but an abundance of STRESS can overpower the body and put you in a constant 'fight or flight" mode which can have negative effects on you, your body and your heart.
