A single and lonely life can not only cause emotional stress and upsetness but it also takes a tollon the physical health and body mechanisms. Recent studies were conducted and the results showed that people with close personal ties and better social relationships tend to fall less sick and live a longer life. The articles focused on why building strong relationships early in life is important.
Strong bond is relaxing for a person's health as it has a positive effect on the body and improved mental health. The benefits of having strong ties in childhood give emotional support and self belief in future. The role of intimate relationships have helped benefit patients with coronary heart diseases. People who have been diagnosed with chronic diseases are encouraged to spend more time with partners for emotional healing.
Dunkel Schetter of University Of California, Los Angeles says that the challenge in front is to improve social relationships so that physical and mental health can be benefited. Studies also shed light on making social connection as a public health priority. Scientific evidence says being socially connected and involved in good quality close relationship decreases mortality rate.
People who are socially isolated, alone and had bad relationships have had developed serious health issues that led to bad quality of life and deteriorated health. The study also criticises government agencies, healthcare providers and NGOs for not realising and working on this ignored aspect. They are slow to realise that social connection affects deeply the health and emotional well-being of a person.
Close relationships are wondrous for health. Not only these help us to alleviate stress at times of difficulties but also stabilize our state. We therefore need someone who we can rely on and can be trusted in times of thick and thin. This bonding and closeness will be beneficial lifelong in leading a happy and fulfilling quality life.
