Help Out Your Neighbors; It’s Good For You

When was the last time you checked in on a neighbor? Been awhile? According to a new survey published in Atlantic Monthly, you aren’t alone.

The survey showed that, regardless of income level, the one community resource that most people felt they lacked was “kind, supportive neighbors.”

And community and environment can actually play a role in overall health and happiness.
