Sign up for a free or low-cost course at the local community education center to learn a new hobby.

Get involved in a cause or community project that makes a difference. Sign up for a walk-a-thon or other athletic fundraiser to help out and stay fit at the same time.

Experts say that those with strong social ties actually live longer and stay healthier.
