We all know how important family life is. Unfortunately, or not we understand it in different stages of our life may be earlier or late. But did you ever think how important you are to your parents or grandparents? According to the recent studies having a close relationship with them enhance their mental and physical wellbeing.
According to the research’s death or disability are not just results of physical health but it can be a mental factor as well such as loneliness. Loneliness is lacking a loyal connection with your loved ones.
The articles “DoYouRemember” states that,
“Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco found that loneliness plays a large role in the decline so often associated with old age. The study followed 1,600 adults, with an average age of 71 — despite controlling for socioeconomic status and health, the lonely consistently held higher mortality rates. Nearly 23% of lonely participants died within six years of the study, as opposed to only 14% of those that reported adequate companionship.”
And according to Scary Mommy,
“Another study, from the Public Library of Science, reported that elderly people who don’t have enough social interaction are twice as likely to die prematurely. To put it in perspective, the increased mortality risk is comparable to the death risk of smoking. Loneliness is approximately twice as dangerous as obesity.”
Moreover, the children who had secure and faithful relationships with their parents feel less isolated, have a good behavior in controlling language and are more responsive than the children who have insecure relationships with their parents.
So, allocate more time share your love and affection towards your parents. This will help them to reduce stress and irritation which will lead to a healthy lifestyle.
These will remain as wonderful memories in your life and add more value to your life.
