Who should you seek out?
When you’re young and building a life and career, it helps to surround yourself with supportive, positive people who have an eye toward success and the future.
That shouldn’t change just because you’ve gotten older.
So what types of people should have the most positive impact on your life and health?
You should surround yourself with people who:
- Are upbeat
- Have shared interests
- Enjoy hobbies
- Have long-term goals
- Are physically active
- Have an extended social circle
- Are not dependent on drugs or alcohol
- Will be there for you in an emergency
- Will know to check on you if you are out of touch
When you look back at your education, your career, your savings and investments, you’ve made plans to accomplish goals.
Likewise, if you set the goal of cultivating your friendships, studies show that you’ll likely reap numerous health and social benefits, and even enjoy a longer life.
