Why You Need a Social Community Life as an Adult

by NY Community

Social isolation can leave you feeling as if you don’t belong.

Lack of a social connection also affects mental health. This is unlike persons with good social connections.

Improved social connection level, according to a study published in the Australian & New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, can protect adults from poor mental health in the future.

According to previous study findings, “social connectedness” or social community life is as good for your health as exercise or quitting bad habits such as smoking. A social community life aids recovery from mental and physical illnesses. It also offers the resilience you need to overcome stressful transitions and events in life.
