Everyday Well-Being

Send a short, friendly email or text to get in touch with someone you like.

How to do it

Take just a moment to step away from any work or home duties today and send a text or email that just says hi to someone you like. Tell the person you were thinking of him or her, and keep the message short and upbeat.

Why it matters

Social interactions play a big part in our emotional and physical health! Studies show that people with a wide circle of friends live longer, healthier lives than people without friends. And having a circle of friends who you interact with regularly helps stave off dementia. Taking a minute out of your day to connect with someone you like will also provide a boost for the recipient of your message - a real win-win!

Fun fact

Humans aren't the only ones who like to make friends! Higher mammals and some birds have buddies who they enjoy spending time with. Some animals of different species may even become BFFs - like a dog and cat, for example - but it's unusual.
