Why Does Human Connection Matter?

Why does human connection matter?

Human connection is more than just socializing. It is the feeling of belonging, of being seen and understood. These connections are vital for our well-being. 

Why human connection matters:

  • Strong connections reduce stress, boost happiness and improve physical health.

  • Human connection can lower anxiety and depression, help us regulate our emotions and lead to higher self-esteem and empathy

How to improve and increase human connections:

  • Build your village and expand your social circle. Volunteer, join a club, take a class. Meeting new people exposes you to different perspectives and broadens your support network. Supportive relationships offer encouragement and advice during tough times. 

  • Prioritize in-person interactions. Make time to go for walks with friends or neighbors. Plan dinner parties or Fiiz dates. Deliver a treat to someone. Have a neighborhood ice cream social. Check in on a friend or neighbor. (Remember texting and social media can’t replace face-to-face interactions.) 

  • Be present. Put away your phone or other distractions during conversations. Actively listen and show genuine interest in the other person’s life. 

  • Embrace vulnerability. When you are genuine and share your true self, it fosters deeper connections. Share your experiences with others, both good and bad. 

Your efforts to increase your human connections will help you increase your personal resilience AND joyful, productive living. These efforts help you build a network of support that can enrich your life in countless ways and improve your home, workplace and community.
