We are so grateful to connect with you through the Weekly Winning Resource! If you haven’t guessed already, this edition is all about the word connect. Here at I’ve Decided, we believe that it is through connections that we find our greatest rewards. Our connections go deeper than we may think. In fact, research shows that social connections have nearly as much health benefit as what we eat and how much we exercise. People who feel connected have lower rates of anxiety and depression. Moreover, we have a higher self-esteem and are more empathetic to others. Brene Brown, a Professor at The University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, and an expert in social connections says, “A deep sense of love and belonging is an irresistible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don’t function as we were meant to.” The truth of the matter is that a sense of social connection is one of our fundamental human needs. Before we can do anything well, we must connect first!
