You may be living your own life in your 30s, but always remember that your mom is always waiting for you to reach out to her, even for a quick 10-minute phone call to listen to your seemingly endless work rants.
Your mom may not say it (or show it) but she craves for love and connection just as much as you do. The feeling of loneliness is common as one reaches old age, and as we've previously reported, it can affect her health, too. As according to a study featured in The JAMA Network, “loneliness is a common source of distress, suffering, and impaired quality of life in older persons.”
So no matter how crazy your schedule is, take the time to check up on her. Make it a habit to call your mom or better yet, find a way to visit her at home.
Mother's day is fast approaching, so make your bonding session extra-special by surprising her with a bouquet of blooms.
