Social wellness refers to the relationships we have and how we interact with others. Our relationships can offer support during difficult times. Social wellness involves building healthy, and supportive relationships, and also fostering a genuine connection with those around you. It also includes balancing the unique needs of romantic relationships with other aspects of your life.
As an aspect of the health equation, it is now receiving a greater emphasis, because there are endless positive effects of developing and maintaining healthy relationships. People who are socially well can enjoy positive health benefits and may even live longer. On the same note, social isolation may lead to health implication on one’s overall health, with research showing that the health risks of isolation can be comparable with that of smoking, high blood pressure and obesity.
Maintaining an optimal level of social wellness allows you to build healthy relationships with others. Having a supportive social network allows you to develop assertive skills and become comfortable with who you are. It is important to surround yourself in a positive social network as it will increase your self-esteem. Social wellness enables you to create boundaries that encourage communication, trust and conflict management. You’ll realise that you have the ability to enhance your personal relationships.
There are many ways you can begin your journey on social wellness, and we encourage you to start off with making an effort to keep in touch with friends and family who are positive and supportive.
