Important Health Benefits of Socializing
We are all individuals, and therefore we are each unique. Because of this, we have different characteristics, likes, and preferences in life. Some of us for example, enjoy our own company much of the time and are happy to see our friends and family members a few times each week. Others may prefer continually being around other people, whereas some prefer pure isolation. Though we laugh and joke about moving to a deserted island to get away from people, the reality is that loneliness can be dangerous to a person’s mental, and physical, health and well-being. There are a wide variety of proven health benefits associated with having a social life and socializing with others, so take a look at the following: Fight stress and depression Believe it or not, but studies have found that socializing with others is a handy way of fighting stress and warding off depression. You see, when you socialize, generally you’ll be happy, and your brain will, therefore, produce and secrete hormones and neurotransmitters responsible for feelings of happiness and tranquillity. Not only that, but these hormones also fight off stress-inducing hormone such as cortisol. By laughing and having a good time you put yourself in a much happier mood, making you less susceptible to mental health conditions such as stress, anxiety, and depression. Better quality of sleep Experts recommend that each night, we average out at around 7 – 9 hours of sleep if we want to enjoy optimal health and wellness. However, the vast majority of us do not get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep each night, which again can leave us susceptible to mental health conditions, not to mention a weakened immune system. By socializing on a semi-regular basis, however, providing you’re in bed at a reasonable time, you can enjoy a better quality of sleep and can prevent conditions such as insomnia. That is partly because socializing stimulates the release of hormones such as dopamine, serotonin, and melatonin, which help us to relax and switch off our minds at night. What’s more, isolation can lead to deep-rooted feelings of loneliness or agitation, which could disrupt your sleeping patterns at night. So, by spending more time with your friends, you could help yourself get more sleep at night. Keeps your brain sharp The human brain is an incredibly powerful organ, yet at times, when it isn't stimulated enough, it can switch off somewhat and leave you susceptible to mental health issues, as well as lapses in focus, motivation, and concentration. What’s more, if your brain isn't overly-stimulated it could potentially be more susceptible to Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, and other degenerative conditions later on in life. When we socialize with others, however, we are forced to engage our brains more, which helps to keep them sharp. That not only boosts your mood, it can also enhance cognitive function, boost motivation levels, and help ward off cognitive decline as we age.

Time for progress and changing bad habitsWe are humans, and we know that our lives are not perfect. Every human makes mistakes. But it would be stupid to repeat those mistakes. Mistakes are made because we need to learn that some things are wrong and that we need to make sure that they are never repeated. This experience is important for us as humans. Some people say that we are just passing through this reality and we are transcending into the other plane of existence. And that is why bad experiences are necessary for us to transcend. To make our life much easier is the path of changing bad habits. These habits are the roots of our mistakes.

ProgressTo progress, you will need to find some peace. You will need to start meditating, and you will need to think about the things you have done bad and the things you need to do to make things right.

Those things are a mirror of us being bad. We must resist them. Save
