Wellness And Your Circle
Circles of influence and your wellness, that is where our spotlight is targetted today. Psychologists, sociologists and other such learned folks have done the research and for some time now they have reported to us that those in our lives who actively influence our thoughts, choices and behaviour affect our wellness.
Some researchers this year announced that they will be taking their investigation further and have developed a smart phone app and wearable monitoring technology that will measure, over a four-year period, the relationship between social networks and a person’s physical activity and sleeping pattern. As these University of Notre Dame researchers seek out hard results to the questions whether “physical activity is a factor in how friendships are formed and do social circles influence a person’s health and fitness choices,” the observations of mere mortals like me show that social circles contribute to varying degree to your emotional health.
