3. Spend Time with Others
This can mean having dinner with family members, going out with friends, participating in community events, or signing up for a class at a local school or community center.

4. Improve Your Sleep
Poor sleep quality can contribute to a variety of problems, including a lower immunity to infections, difficulty concentrating, and an increased risk of heart problems and stroke. While getting more sleep is important, making sure you’re getting quality sleep is also crucial.

5. Health Screenings
Have screenings to check your bone density,blood pressure, and other health factors to help determine whether you need to see your doctor for diagnostic tests. If you already have diabetes, you can have screenings done to check your glucose or A1C levels, which helps track how well you’re managing your condition and can alert you to any dangerous spikes or drops.
