Stay socially connected

social connections, active lifestyle, volunteer, health relationships


People who regularly engage in social activities may be less vulnerable to depression, and some research has shown that social interaction may also help keep the brain vital and healthy. Find ways to maintain friendships and stay connected to others.

If you've been spending a lot of time alone, resolve to get more socially engaged by trying at least one new activity today. Keeping the brain stimulated through social interaction helps build critical brain connections which make your brain more resilient.

For more information on keeping your brain healthy, call our Helpline at 608.232.3400 or 888.308.6251 or ask about our community education program, “Maintaining Brain Health.”
