As we enter 2024, I have noticed that many people feel a sense of connection to the community a little more.

As I sit at a cafe, I notice that people are interacting with each other instead of sitting on the phone or being distracted by others. It is great to hear people laugh and enjoy each other's company.

There have been many times I have been to a cafe where people are sitting in a group and are on their phones, and no one is engaging in conversation.

Community is significant for everyone to feel like a part of. We all have different definitions of what community is to us.

Do you know where you feel the most comfortable? Do you socialise or prefer to stay home and keep to yourself?

While following what is right for you is essential, yes, it can be easy to get into the routine of sitting at home and not going out. It is necessary to connect with others at least one day a week; the best way to do this is to do something with people who enjoy the same things as you.

Having fun is essential for your overall health and well-being.

Dancing and music can be a lot of fun, and it can be the music that you enjoy and love. It can be with one person or with a group, whichever you are comfortable with.

Music has this fantastic way of bringing people together, and it can also help you forget about any worries or fears and be in the same space as other people.

A good community is there to support you when you need them. In a society where so much is online and fast-paced, being in the community in person can make a massive difference to your health, fitness and well-being.

Let's take a look at some of the benefits of being part of YOUR community, whoever they are:

  • Increased energy

  • Increased level of serotonin, the feel-good hormone that helps us to enjoy life

  • Less stress - this helps to have a clear mind, making it easier to make health choices.

  • More likely to choose nutritional foods

  • Better quality sleep

  • You are more likely to smile, which helps you feel good about yourself.

  • Know that you have people around you that care about you.

These are just a few benefits of being part of the community.

We have a FREE downloadable checklist for you to use to help check in about your Health and Well-being.
