Over the past 20+ years, technology and the internet have significantly changed how people connect to one another. On one hand, technology has made it easier for us to keep in touch with more people—knocking down the barriers of time and distance. On the flipside, the pervasive access to digital communication has curbed our need—both functionally and socially—to meet face-to-face.
What’s Technology Got to Do With It?
Fewer in-person interactions, more time consumed with smartphones and tablets. What has been the impact on society? At least to some extent, our modern society has undergone a degraded sense of community, replacing face-time spent with neighbors, friends, and family with online communication and entertainment.
In the grand scheme of things, technological innovation has graced our lives with medical breakthroughs and life-altering solutions. The increased ease of access to information, people, and products and services has added immeasurable value to our daily lives. Even so, our susceptibility to increased isolation and limited, more shallow social interaction should be offset by means of other lifestyle choices.
Community Wellness = Social Connectivity
Thankfully, there are numerous ways you can promote your social wellbeing. One consistent channel for genuine social connection, for instance, is the place we choose to live.
Promote your wellbeing and foster healthy, meaningful relationships with others by selecting to live in a community in which wellness is valued, prioritized, and even facilitated through organized activities and events. Community wellness offers residents more than its known physical health benefits; the types of activities facilitated further brings people together—turning neighbors into friends, and promoting a healthy, happy family life for children and adults alike.
