Montreal, January 21: A strong social network is crucial for mental as well as physical well being, finds a study, suggesting that isolation can lead to health problems especially for those who move places for better career opportunities. Researchers from Concordia University found that immigrants who were able to form friendships and get involved in new social networks during their first five months in Cada had increases in heart rate variability. While those who remained socially isolated over time showed a decrease. In the weeks and months that follow a major move, people often find it hard to make new friends and establish a solid social network. (ians)
