Be Social, as Much as You Can

Isolation and lack of communication are the two biggest reasons for depression, mental and physical illnesses.

No matter how busy your family and work life is, try to dedicate some time to friends and socialise with them.

We cannot stay healthy without interacting with other people. Statistics show that people with good social connections tend to be healthier and live longer than those that don’t. Communicating with others lowers our stress levels.

Social health comes from regular, positive social contact with family, friends, neighbours, work, and school.

Belongingness and social contact can also come from sports clubs, community groups, volunteer organisations, churches, political parties, special interest, and hobby groups, and so on.

Schools, gyms, swimming pools, libraries, and community events (like fairs and markets) provide opportunities for social contact.

Find something that works for you or challenge yourself to reach out and talk to a new person every day!
