It can seem obvious. But serious large-scale medical studies show that social isolation is a risk factor for dying. As a British study noted:
“Individuals’ experiences within social relationships significantly predicted risk of mortality.”
This article in The Washington Post covers the bases. Two serious facts from a huge Meta analysis caught our eye:

- And isolation is more of a morbidity risk factor than being inactive or obese.
Our Philadelphia Personal Trainer Team has been thinking that regardless of our age, we want to age in place. So interacting with other people can help that happen.
Yes getting out is great when you’re older. And isn’t just as great for everyone?
You can be a new mom, an overworked lawyer or that single senior and feel isolated.
As a Philadelphia Personal Trainer here quoted: “What good is sitting alone in your room?”
