5 Reasons Why You Need To Be Part of a Community

As humans we are hardwired to be around other humans. We are designed to have connection and the sense of belonging. In fact belonging is a huge part of human survival whether you like it or not. Even as an introvert and someone who cherishes having the space to think, just be, and shut my mind off, I've personally experienced the important value of community. Without getting too sciency on you, multiple studies have shown how hormones such as Oxytocin and Seratonin are the driving force for the need of human connection. I chose to share this important topic with you today because a tremendous amount of people are craving human connection. The beauty of this day and age is you can create connections and find community through in person and online groups. Before I get in to the top 5 reasons here is one recent example of a couple of students of mine who built community, developed deep connection, and friendship. View this post on Instagram
