Research shows that social integration – how much we interact with people – is the number one factor to living a long life*. Connecting to others, whether that be in a professional or personal context is essential to our growth and development.
Furthermore, having a trusted support network can help prevent depression, isolation and loneliness, supporting our mental health.
Good social health is when we can easily adapt to different social situations and people without compromising ourselves in any way. Cultivating healthy relationships and engaging with a community can be rewarding, promoting a sense of belonging and security.
