|Valentine’s Day fanfare — from the cards to the flowers and candy — all say “I care about you” to anyone close to our hearts.

You don’t have to have a Valentine’s Day sweetheart to reap the benefits of caring relationships. The wellness-boosting advantages of relationships stem from anyone who’s close to our hearts — from a friend or family member to a coworker.
If you’re searching for meaningful relationships, try participating in local community events that you enjoy. Finding friends with similar interests can jumpstart companionship. For example, local clubs, college extension classes, specialty instruction like gardening or cooking classes, community exhibits, the gym, etc. can be great places to connect with people around you. Volunteering is another winning way to foster close relationships.Dr. Barbara Smith
