Social connections have been linked to a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer while an increase in physical activity levels promotes healthy behaviors such as good nutrition and adequate sleep.
Social wellness provides a source of support and encouragement during challenging times and can help individuals develop a sense of purpose and meaning in life.
