Power of the Tribe
Tribes started our being necessary for survival, and at some level, our bodies still need that connectedness
With modern technology, TV’s, social media and car-centric urban design, we have less and less social connection with the people around us.
One study examining the people of Alameda County, California, found that people with the most social ties were three times less likely to have died over a nine-year period than those who reported the fewest social ties. Those with more social connections were even found to have lower rates of cancer.
