Social Wellness

To attain social wellness, one must participate in and contribute to one’s community, country, and world. Social wellness emphasizes an interdependence and engagement with others. It includes pursuing harmony in relationships, learning and practicing good communication skills, developing the capacity for intimacy, and cultivating a support network of caring friends and family members.

Social wellness means experiencing positive interactions with others. Close friendships based on empathy, mutual caring, and effective listening enhance both work and leisure activities. One soon discovers one has the power to make choices that enhance personal relationship, the community, the environment, and the world. One also realizes the benefit of contributing to common welfare and living in harmony with others and the environment.
