In an intake session with a new client I always ask about their social support. I’ve always known how important a strong support network and social relationships are for psychological well-being. It turns out that social relationships are also incredible important for health and longevity in general. A recent meta-analysis conducted by Brigham Young University (BYU) of 148 studies on the social habits of over 300,000 people found that people with stronger social ties had a 50% lower chance of dying over a given period. In statistical terms, that’s a significant different. In layman’s terms, that’s a HUGE difference.
