Downtown's Healthcare

Humans are essentially social beings, which means that we all need social interaction for keeping our mood up and our health strong. Having company, friends and family to talk to and to spend time with are essential not only for our physical well-being, but for our mental health as well – here is how social interaction influences mental health and general well-being:

  • A multitude of neurotransmitters activated – social interaction, especially face to face contact, is known to activate the neurotransmitters that are active in the release of happiness hormones, including dopamine and oxytocin. The process induces a sense of well-being and happiness, often also a more positive, more optimistic take on life;
  • Reduced cortisol levels – social interaction is also known to reduce the level of the stress hormone cortisol; therefore, it is great for reducing stress levels, anxiety and depression;
  • Work-out for the brain – social interaction is also great for mental acuity and memory; therefore, it is also great for preventing or for slowing the progression of neurodegenerative illnesses of the brain;
  • A sense of contentment – having close friends or family members to talk to and to meet with regularly can improve overall life satisfaction in any life period, being of special importance at old age.
