Why Community and Connectivity are More Important than Ever

We live in a time when you can have a thousand Facebook friends and still feel alone. In an age of fast-paced communication, stressful careers and individualism it is easy to feel disconnected. However, this can drastically impact your mental health and wellbeing. One of the biggest factors affecting our community experience and the notion of connectivity is the environment we live in.

With this in mind, Kynetone on Riverside has been envisioned as a place that offers the familiarity of an old-fashioned country community and the creature comforts of a modern lifestyle. Maintaining a sense of belonging in your community can do wonders for your health, wellbeing and quality of life.

According to the Australian Government’s Department of Health, around one third of Australian adults are not involved in any social or community groups. The research goes on to confirm that “being part of a community can have a positive effect on mental health and emotional wellbeing”.

In these chaotic times, being part of a community allows you the enjoyment and comfort of feeling a sense of belonging and social connectedness. Not only this, but those who feel connected to their community will enjoy a new meaning and purpose to everyday life which extends beyond their standard work or family role.

An increasing number of people are recognising this intuitive need to return to a home environment that offers a friendly neighbourhood and a sense of community and belonging. These are individuals, couple and families who have discovered that a change of environment can completely change their living dynamics and quality of life and that this doesn’t have to be a drastic change.

In fact, you don’t need to move to remote village to feel like a member of a community and live a healthier and more fulfilling life. You can discover real communities just a train ride away from the inner city. At KOR, these values are embedded in the layout of the homes, the activities and facilities available to residents and the philosophy of the entire development.

The best part is, your new neighbours have all come to this town with the same goals and lifestyle choices in mind, so you already have something in common.
