The Benefits of Socializing on Health
The sun is shining and it’s time to get social! Whether it’s chatting over coffee or taking a nice spring walk with a friend, being social does a lot more than boost our mood in the moment. Read on to learn some of the long-term health benefits that result from socializing.
Being Social Helps Build New Skills
Participating in social activities is one of the best ways to build a new skill. Being in a group setting offers you the encouragement you need to learn quickly and challenge your creativity. At Trico LivingWell, we have social activities in performing arts, music, art, pottery and gardening to help you continue your lifelong learning journey.
Being Social Improves Brain Health
Participating in social activities helps you feel fulfilled by lowering stress levels, decreasing depression and anxiety, and providing an opportunity to engage your memory through problem-solving. Social activities can also help you find meaning that develops resilience, a key mindset built through thoughts, actions, and behaviours. You can check out Trico LivingWell’s organized events to get involved in our weekly game nights, personal interest clubs, and external excursions to take care of your brain while having fun along the way.
Being Social Benefits Many Dimensions of Wellness
We recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to health and wellness. Social activities are a great addition to your wellness routine because they incorporate many dimensions of wellness. Trico LivingWell offers many opportunities to take care of your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. You can take a trip to our community garden to nurture your soul or enjoy a cultural performance in our theatre. The best part? These activities may benefit different dimensions of your wellness routine based on your own personal journey – we are all unique.
Being Social Builds Community
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”
Social activities help build community. Through community, we are able to seek meaningful connections that help us live a happy, healthy life. At Trico LivingWell, we strive to create a supportive, inclusive, and secure community that empowers you to live life to the fullest.
