Connecting with others
Humans are social creatures, so we're hard-wired to want to connect with other people. Social connection is good for our mental health, can lower anxiety and depression, help us regulate our emotions, and lead to higher self-esteem and empathy.
It can also be good for our physical health, too - with proof social connection can improve our immune systems.
This year, it has become even more clear just how important it is for us to connect with other people. And while that might seem difficult right now, there are still so many offerings from organisations across Victoria that are designed to help you connect virtually with others.
