06 Oct One Thing You Should Invest in Today, for a Happy, Healthy Tomorrow
In one of the longest studies ever conducted, researchers found that having happy relationships is the most important factor to mental, AND PHYSICAL well being later in life. Not money, or fame – just the quantity and quality of our relationships.
Although I know this now, and try to make time for what matters most, I was raised in a home where work was worshipped. It took me years of re-learning to not tie my worth to professional success, and to reach out for connection when I felt lonely. When we let small slights fester, squeeze in “one more client” at work rather than have dinner with our kids, and let the stress of day to day life be an excuse for not having fun with our partners or keeping up with our friends, our bodies and our minds suffer.
