Social Distancing: A Hidden Health Risk?

Dear Turapür Today Reader,

Coronavirus vaccines are here!

But millions of Americans are still practicing strict social distancing to avoid contracting the coronavirus.

That means staying away from crowds, avoiding stores, and keeping face-to-face visits with family and neighbors minimal.

While this might be your new “normal,” becoming TOO isolated could also take a serious toll on your health.

Especially if you’re an older adult…

You see, according to research out of Argentina, staying extremely isolated is causing a spike in high blood pressure cases.

Researchers examined over 12,000 patients with an average age of 57 that visited a hospital during March – June 2020 (the early days of COVID-19). They compared those patients to other emergency room patients during that same time period back in 2019 (pre-COVID).

The data showed that the folks who admitted themselves into the ER during early COVID-19 days were linked to a 37% INCREASE in the odds of having high blood pressure.

But what’s the connection between COVID-19, isolating, and high blood pressure?

The research team noted that increased stress due to the pandemic, limited interaction with others, and even financial or family difficulties all play a role in this increase in blood pressure.

So you might be wonder: how exactly are you supposed to practice responsible social distancing WITHOUT risking your health?

First and foremost, try to get as much outdoor physical activity as possible.

I know that the temperatures are getting colder, but simply walking even 10 minutes per day around your neighborhood is a great weapon against feeling isolated or “cooped up.” (You can also wear a mask if you live on a busy street.)

Consider meeting up with a friend or neighbor in your yard or a local park where you can catch up with them face-to-face at a safe distance.

And don’t forget to embrace the power of technology when connecting with family… especially if they live out-of-state. Weekly chats via online platforms like Zoom or Google Meet are a great way to interact face-to-face with friends AND loved ones.
