K is for Kibitzing – Remember to Put Some Social Interaction in Your Day
Almost everyone enjoys talking with others, sharing information, hardships and successes. It’s no wonder. Humans are social beings. Sometimes though, with our increasingly busy schedules and day to day responsibilities we can get so caught up in what we have to do that days will go by without any social contact other than that involving basic necessities. Yet social interaction and support are among the most important influences on our physical and emotional health and our ability to function adaptively in our day to day lives. This applies to those of all ages from childhood through older adults. We are never too young or too old to benefit from social interaction.
Even if you have to schedule it in order to remember, make sure to take time for social conversation in your day. A little kibitzing goes a long way.
