Our episode this week is all about how community can help us live happier, healthier, and longer lives. We discuss how to find our community, and even how we can create our own tribe.
For all of human history, community has played a vital role in our safety and sense of purpose. Over the years, quality connection has been replaced by quantity - leading us down the path of a thousand connections, but has simultaneously left us feeling alone.
In this episode we talk about how finding community in the 21st century can be challenging, but is imperative to our wellbeing. David gives us actionable advice on how looking for opportunities to help others can help us find our tribe, and reap in the benefits of having a support system around us.
Community has the power to extend our lives, and David is in the business of forming quality communities.
Listen to this episode and live a longer happier life with quality community.
