Find a community where you live, as it can be your ultimate lifesaver. Many parents are traveling to new cities as they take their kids to college/university; where unfamiliarity and ‘loneliness’ can set in. Feeling emotionally/socially disconnected from those around you can take a great toll on one’s health. Yes, I said it. One often de-prioritizes emotional health in favor of physical health. But, I am here to tell you that our emotional well-being can have a profound impact on the likelihood of success in these new locations and ultimately on our longevity. Find or create a community of friends who share similar interests, or even branch out into something new. Your emotional state and ultimately your overall health with thank you for it.
