Social Connections

Updated: Nov 12, 2021

Social Connections

The Harvard Study of Adult Development has been running for over 75 years tracking the lives of 724 men. The study regularly asks these participants the same questions about work life, home life and health and have been correlating the data.

What the data has shown is a clear link that the happiest and healthiest participants all have good, supportive relationships.

Why? Because we are naturally social beings so loneliness is detrimental to our overall health.

· Living with loneliness increases your odds of dying early by 45% (more than obesity)

· Causes a similar amount of damage to your lifespan as smoking 15 cigarettes a day

· Loneliness is associated with a higher risk of high blood pressure in older people

· Makes it harder to recover from illnesses, including mental health concerns

“Connection is why we are here, it’s what gives us meaning and purpose in life.” – Brene Brown
