Get more social! A recent review of over 70 studies in Perspectives on Psychological Science found that people who are alone and isolated are 29% more likely to die early… Compared to those with a larger social circle. Which is comparable to the mortality rate from severe obesity. So, meet new people by taking classes, or signing up for a team sport.
