Make New Friends

 

Consider a variety of avenues to create a fresh social network, no matter your age

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – As we age, we realize more and more that our true treasure is not in the bank or our retirement accounts. It’s in our lives, families and friendships.

In fact, close relationships are vital to our physical, mental and emotional health – contributing to our quality of life, self-esteem and even longevity. Studies show that a lack of social connection can be as damaging as smoking, drinking too much, or even leading a sedentary lifestyle. So, when the professional or social interactions shift and evolve, it becomes increasingly important to build and maintain your network.

American Heart Association says Young Adults, Women experience only slight declines in Heart Disease Deaths

 

American Heart Association Rapid Access Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Deaths from heart disease have declined dramatically over the last few decades but young people, particularly women, are not sharing equally in that improvement, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

Using data on adults age 25 and older, researchers tracked annual percentage changes in heart disease death rates between three time periods: 1979-1989, 1990-1999 and 2000-2011. Death rates in adults 65 and over declined consistently over the decades, with accelerating improvements since 2000.

Improvements in death rates have slowed in people under age 55, particularly among women. (Amiercan Heart Association)
