Friends and family are the key to happiness, and they just might be the key to brain health as well. Dr. David Perlmutter, FACN, ABIHM and Board-Certified Neurologist says that social interaction has a significant effect on long-term brain health and function.
“Social interaction will make your life more meaningful and fun while stimulating and protecting your brain,” said Dr. Perlmutter.
In honor of International Friendship Day, which is this Sunday, August 5, invite a friend to enjoy one of these activities with you:
- Take a walk through the neighborhood
- Invite your friend over for a home-cooked meal
- Volunteer for a local non-profit with a friend
- Begin a book club with a friend
