What’s the Skinpact? By Dr. Katie Rodan
Did you know that connectedness is a huge predictor of longevity? So what’s the skinpact here? Well, when we feel good about ourselves, we are more inclined to stay connected to others. Along with a nutritious diet and active lifestyle, staying in touch with family and friends is an essential, healthy habit. When we feel insecure about our appearance it can prompt us to isolate ourselves from the world, opt out of social outings and shy away from new adventures.
Confidence helps us to reach out and engage in our communities. And this connectedness, in turn, further boosts our desire to make the very most of our appearance. By surrounding ourselves with positive, like-minded people with similar values, we actually improve not only our odds for living longer, we also improve our appearance. What a wonderful phenomenon!
For Dr. Fields and me, our friendship has played a critical role in the quality of our lives today, and research shows that it will also increase the quantity of years we have ahead of us. Kathy has been a constant source of companionship over the past 25 years; she’s supported me through good times and bad and always pushes me to be a better person. I don’t know what I would do without her in my life!
