BITESIZE | Why Friendships, Community and Compassion Matter for Our Health | Dr Julian Abel

by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  April 16, 2021

Compassion, friendships and strong community connections don’t just make us feel good, they can have powerful effects on our health and longevity.

Feel Better Live More Bitesize is my new weekly podcast for your mind, body and heart.  Each week I’ll be featuring inspirational stories and practical tips from some of my former guests.

Today’s clip is from episode 138 of the podcast with Dr Julian Abel – a recently retired consultant in palliative care.

Julian is joint leader of a project which aimed to end loneliness and improve health in the town of Frome in Somerset.  In this episode, he describes the incredible results and explains why social relationships, compassion and a sense of community are so important for our quality of life, our health and wellbeing.

If we choose to be compassionate, not only is it good for us, but it’s also good for everyone around us. Compassion is more powerful than many of the medicines we have, so let’s help it spread.
