While many of us focus primarily on diet and exercise to achieve better health, science suggests that our well-being also is influenced by the company we keep. Researchers have found that certain health behaviors appear to be contagious and that our social networks — in person and online — can influence obesity, anxiety and overall happiness.

@islandgent_713 It just makes sense on a lot of levels! Like, you usually do similar things with the people you hang out with that can affect health, but also attitude is totally contagious! I have taken some positive psychology courses and so I am always stoked when I see things like this in the news.


It does seem intuitive doesn't it. In the article I like the idea of Blue Zones or moais like they have in Japan. That's fascinating. A life-long positive support network.

A Blue Zone(in more ways than one)perhaps? 🤔


We have to identify the right sort tho...and go from there.

@islandgent_713 Lol...what are your qualifications! Haha. Like, high physical activity...on multiple levels?? ;p

@delphine Ok...I like where this is going. But let's think about it further. Perhaps multiple small groups within the community, groups of

@islandgent_713 yes I believe I do shame we all don’t live on an island somewhere 😍❤️😍

@islandgent_713 I get to Houston once a year to shoot with a female photographer. Last visit I went to Lakewood. What you share is so what Joel preaches. No judgement, mindfulness, living a positive life with the same folks around you,

Ah...that’s awesome if it’s also backed with action.

His reputation took a bit of a hit last year during Hurricane Harvey when he grudgingly allowed his massive cathedral to be used as an evacuation centre for people displaced by the flooding.
I’ve always believed that for whom much is given, much is expected. 🤷🏾‍♂️

@islandgent_713 I agree. Walk the talk. I have read about that a bit more in depth and while I don''t live there I think that was a lot media propaganda. I don't see him as perfect and she gets on my nerves but there WAS power in that place that morning. Hard not to feel it.


I hope the city never experiences anything like that again. But with climate change it’s a distinct possibility.

And I hope the Olsteen’s learn from that experience as well. This city really pulled together and they were kind of conspicuous outliers. 🤷🏾‍♂️

@islandgent_713 I hope you do not either and that the Osteen's never forget they are in the spotlight with the world watching!

Indeed...thanks for the correction, it is Osteen. Obviously, I’m not a huge fan. 🤣🙏🏾

@AnnekeVB 😂🤣
But here in The H their congregation is massive so I know a few parishioners and the Osteen’s are well regarded, as was his father before him.
