If you enjoy reading, consider joining a book club!

Besides the fact that reading a book with friends is fun, strong friendships develop.  For me getting together is more important than the book choice.  According to the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, regular get-togethers are important for health reasons.  Their large scale study showed that connected people have 22% lower stress hormones.  This slows the aging process for skin and organs explains the coauthor Lynne C. Giles, PhD.  That’s amazing– we can reduce wrinkles with strong friendships.
