Co-housing is good for you

So says Creating a Life Together, a guide to intentional community by Diane Leaf Christian.

Scientific research shows that our health improves when we live in a web of connection with others. “Of all the many influences on our health, interpersonal relationships are not only a factor, but increasingly are being recognized as the most crucial factor,” physician Blair Vovoydic writes in Communities magazine.“Being connected to other people probably makes you physically healthier than if you lived alone.” This appears to be especially true for older people, who tend to stay healthier longer, recover from illness more quickly, and live longer than the elderly not living in community.
