It is important to balance your life with social and recreational activities. Believe it or not, scientists have discovered that the brain produces substances that can make you feel better physically when you are feeling positively about things. Such positive feelings develop more often when you feel connected to other people and your community. Joining or volunteering for an organization can help you connect with others in your community and prevent feelings of loneliness and not being a part of the world. So...get out there and have some fun!
