Strong social networks can have a significant impact on our quality of life and happiness as they provide something which is vital for all of us – a sense of belonging. ⠀

Harvard University recently concluded a 75 year study on happiness which found that a person’s overall happiness and physical well-being is heavily dependent on whether they belong to a strong community and have quality social connections. Over a period of 75 years, the  study found that, quite simply, “Good relationships keep us happier and healthier, period.” ⠀

So, with that in mind, here are some ideas on how to get involved in your local community:⠀

* Go to local community events ⠀

* Get a plot at a community garden⠀

* Volunteer at a local community resource⠀

* Shop locally⠀

* Join a local class or group ⠀

* Organize a street party/BBQ⠀
