Description

Confined to our homes, many of us are experiencing a newfound appreciation for our social relationships. What we may not realize — and what physicians and researchers have only recently started emphasizing — is the importance of these connections to our physical health. This week, we talk with former U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy about why he considers loneliness a matter of public health, and how we can all deepen our social ties.

it was lovely and i feel very validated, i say to my friends the reason I'm so joyful is gratitude and servitude. each day i take 5 minutes at the end of the day to write down everything i am grateful for. i also look out each day, to give, to serve and i agree with his thoughts on that, it's little moments and its presence. doing these two things daily makes me the funnest person with a chronic, limiting illness. shift your focus and your whole world shifts 🙏
