Does harmonious family life help to decrease the level of depression and mental illneses?
in adults and children alike? From the recent discovery of the eldest found skeleton of likely human ancestor the scientists discovered that our social behaviour, our social system found in no other primates such as abandonment of fighting with other males for attention of females and pair-bonding, staying together, sharing food and looking together after offsprings help us to evolve in the first place. Is still monogamous life and pair bonding for life important for us?
Undoubtedly and unequivocally, yes. Without compassion, care, love we're empty shells. Hallow husks of flesh and bone, if you like. A harmonious and welcoming atmosphere gives us power in various forms.
1. It strengthens our immune system and our body - if you happy, you are less susceptible to various diseases, especially aging and heart diseases
2. It strengthens our mind - if you are happy, your mind is clear, it is stable, it is stronger. People, like other beings, learn to do things by rewards, having a family gives a person reason to live, reason to fight and more important of all, it gives said person LIFE
3. It softens the character and brings wisdom into our life - every person is born without any hardship and negativity, those sentiments, feelings if you like, are gained over time, through bad experiences. Having love in ones life, helps us dilute those bad memories and set those feelings aside. Love actually makes you a better person and teaches you the value of freedom, the knowledge of wisdom and in one way or another, the meaning of life, well part of it at least.
So in order to answer your question, yes. Monogamous life is very important to us, it is the only thing that will help us go to the next step.
I think another question would be harmonious for which members of the family. Some may be nurtured and secure at the expense of others. For example, a male breadwinner may be quietly crushed by the day to day stress of holding down a job in a time of recession, yet continue to supply emotional support to the rest of the family. Carers' may have their physical and mental health broken whilst supplying all that is needed for the cared for. As for monogomy, it works fine when the life expectancy of those who practice it is short. I would have thought that in the 21st century, serial monogomy is more common; the practice of divorce in order to remarry the person you've been having an affair with.
Most definitely yes. The best researched examples can be found in the literature regarding Schizophrenic patients and recidivism, but there is also much literature indicating positive family relations as being one of the central grounding and resiliency promoting factors in a child's life. -and in the opposite case, family related stress is one of the most commonly cited stressors and significantly increases the likelihood of emotional difficulties.
indeed it does, it is the opposite of what you are exposed as well as used to. Naturally it is suppose to change your attitude as well as mind set, but that can only happen if that is what you Want as well as need for your life!

Of course! The environment you surround yourself in is what helps to make you or break you!
yes of cours , since family is smallest unit of personal life, a harmonious family life can bring down the level of depression and mental illness

Of course I won't but how would you react to someone who threatens to do this. Someone I know, fairly well, committed suicide this year. He had money worries and I feel really guilty that I did not take up his offer of carpentry work from a flier he put through my letterbox. I didn't know he was in...

I am the mother of an only child-a 23 year old son who lives less than a mile from my house. I am at a loss to express my disappointment with his behavior. He is a man full of incredible rage, particularly aimed at me and his father. If we dare to deny him anything-and I mean...

Nature has given us the instrument of sex for the perpetuation of life upon this planet. If sex instruments are used for legitimate purposes, they need not become instruments of degradation. But when we fall into the trap of self-indulgence, we begin to descend towards the animal plane. It blinds...

Why do some families of the mentally ill turn their backs on them?I have seen many people who are truly, seriously, mentally ill with diagnosis such as Schizophrenia have no one, absolutely no one. Their families have disownded them. Although it is extremely difficult to deal with someone with that...

You know how I am very skeptical of religiosity, however, there is, for me, a deeper consideration about all this apparent need for "faith" and "beliefs."It's all about inspiration and what gives us humans impetus. There is a need to look beyond the mundane and the forces...

I am 41 and was diagnosed with clinical depression over four years ago. I have learned to accept that medication will be part of my life and have come to terms with the fact that I do not have the coping skills that most people have. I am married and raising four children; all of this...
