You Can’t Pick Your Family!
May this note find you in good health with your Medicare insurance working properly.
An important part of aging well includes maintaining healthy relationships.
Studies have shown that individuals with close connections to their community and their families tend to be healthier and happier.
The truth is, you can’t pick your family.
George Burns knew something about the happiness a family can bring:
“Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.”
– George Burns
Another wise person said this about the importance of family:
Treat your family like friends and your friends like family.
Family doesn’t always mean your blood relatives. Many of us have close friends who are family.
Kids who spend more time with their family tend to perform well in school. Studies have also shown that kids who hang out with family tend to have fewer behavioral issues and fewer problems with substance abuse.
Studies have also shown that stronger family connections can increase lifespan by 50%!
So look for ways to stay connected.
And remember – you can’t pick your family … but you can pick your Medicare insurance coverage!
