The Science of social connection
Humans are inherently social creatures, this much we know. It’s pretty much been at the core of our survival since day one. When we are at work, at home, performing or doing yoga, either way we need to feel loved and feel a sense of belonging in whatever we do. Even the most introverted among us need some form of social stimulation in order to feel like ourselves and do our best. What to do and how to stay healthy, read it in The Science of Social Connection.
The benefits of having strong social ties
The impact of strong social connections on a person’s health – both physiological and psychological – has been well documented for years. Adults who have strong social ties tend to live longer and healthier than those who do not – even if, on the whole, a well connected adult has a more unhealthier diet or habits.
And the benefits? Having a good network of friends and family that you see regularly can lead to an incredible 50% increased chance of living a longer life, strengthen your immune system and help you recover faster from illness.
To Remco Claassen great leadership is knowing who you are and being able to transform this into benefits to others. Ask yourself what is the impact of your presence on your social environment? When you feel good about yourself, you’re automatically more attractive and become a sort of energy charging station to others.
Before performing an important task, Remco suggests to check how your imaginary tail is doing. Do you feel hyped about it or not at all? How is your energy level before, during and after the task? Be honest with yourself when checking and simply determine whether something draws on your energy or if it gives you energy. If the former is the case, you might have to reset your compass. When it gives you energy you know you are on the right path!
