Get connected socially with real people in the real world. It may save your life!
According to one Stanford University Medical School study, strong social connection:
- leads to a 50% increased chance of longevity
- strengthens your immune system
- helps you recover from disease faster
- may even lengthen your life!
Social connectedness generates a positive feedback loop of social, emotional, and physical well-being. It will decrease anxiety and depression and lead instead to higher self-esteem, a greater sense of empathy for others, and a more positive outlook on life.
So drop the social media, and get connected socially with real people in the real world. It may save your life!
