From Prevention Magazine, I read the following the article entitled, "The Art and Science of Aging Beautifully"
There were many sections and tips and suggestions, but this one is about pool!!
Go Out With Girlfriends
Relaxing with friends reduces stress, boosts self-esteem, and even makes you more loving toward your partner when you get home. "Women are terrific at connecting socially but often let if fade by the wayside in their 40s because of career and family demands, " says Edward Schneider, MD, emeritus dean and professor of gerontology and medicine at the University of Southern California's Andrus Gerontology Center. Women with extensive social networks through family, work, volunteer organizations, religious groups, or hobbies have lower blood pressure, less diabetes, reduced risk of heart disease, and half as many strokes as women who are less well connected.
There you go, Ladies! Keep up the great weekends at pool tournaments for our physical and mental health! :)
