The Importance of Community on Our Well-Being

 The Importance of Community on Our Well-Being

Humans are social animals, and they need people to survive.

We live in a society, and we should follow a system to co-exist.

We see people around us who have the same and different interests. Sometimes, we connect with them, and sometimes we don't, and that's perfectly fine.

The word "Community" is used in almost everything, but do we really know its meaning? Do we truly understand why it is crucial? Let's first understand what community is all about.

A community is simply a group of people with something common. It could be anything like demographics, faith, interests, etc. These communities help in building relationships, boost confidence, and improve overall well-being. As per various reports, it was found that a person's social networks can significantly impact their health. A study has found that having social support can recover humans from illness more quickly and keep them mentally happy and satisfied.

Let's discuss how communities can help us in our overall well-being.

1. Sparks Motivation:

When we're surrounded by like-minded people and see their progress, we aim to do the same in our lives and start longing for success. Spending time with people with whom we share the same interest, we understand more, connect more, and aim to improve ourselves.

2. Improves Communication Skills:

No doubt, having good communication skills can do wonders for us. When we're a part of a community, we exchange ideas, and these interactions build strong communication skills, hence improving our well-being.

3. Relieves Stress:

When we have someone to talk to and with whom we can spend some quality time with— we discuss things and get the guidance we need. Our mind feels relaxed and gives us a sense of security that eliminates stress. Communities keep us engaged and leave us with less time to think about our stress and anxiety.

4. Outlines a Pool of New Ideas:

When we're a part of a community, we expose ourselves to different people who have different mindsets and expertise. We interact with multiple personalities and understand diverse viewpoints. This process helps us generate new thoughts and ideas, eventually improving our creative and analytical skills.

5. Improves Decision Making:

Humans build self-confidence and trust themselves when they feel others agree with their viewpoints and support them through their thick and thins. When we're a part of a community, we have access to people who can help and guide us — whenever we need them. They improve our decision-making power and make us believe in ourselves.

6. Teaches Acceptance:

Being a part of a community helps to learn the art of acceptance. There will be times when we would not agree with someone's idea or wouldn't feel their 'vibe' — and that's okay. Being open to new things and accepting them graciously is one of the most essential life skills that everyone should possess.

7. Paves a Way for Professional Development:

Surrounded by people who are masters of their field can be very helpful — professionally. We can get a chance to learn new things, build connections and actively form associations with individuals with a growth mindset.

The Bottom Line:

Though there are people who don't like to socialize or love to enjoy their own company. But humans cannot stay alone forever. This is a fact. Talking with someone, sharing emotions, or just having a strong connection can contribute to a healthy heart too. Communities add colors to life and gift a sense of belongingness.
