Social Wellness

Social Wellness was created to assist people in their efforts to live a healthier life. It offers an excellent opportunity to help yourself and others feel good about themselves, and build stronger social ties. We would like to join you and encourage you to work to become a better, healthier person.

Social Wellness emphasizes the interdependence with others and nature. It includes the pursuit of harmony in one's family. As you travel a wellness path, you'll take an active part in improving our world by encouraging a healthy living environment and initiating better communication with those around you.

Social wellness is having positive interactions with, and enjoying being with others. It is having comfort and ease during work and leisure situations and communicating feelings and needs to others. It involves developing and building close friendships and intimacy, practicing empathy and effective listening, caring for others and for the common good, and allowing others to care for you. It is recognizing the need for leisure and recreation and budgeting time for those activities.

As you proceed on your social wellness journey, you'll discover many things - you'll discover that you have the power to make willful choices to enhance personal relationships, important friendships, your community, the environment, the world and, most importantly, your health. As you travel the wellness path, you'll begin to believe that - socially

  • It's better to contribute to the common welfare of our community than to think only of ourselves.

  • It's better to live in harmony with others and our environment than to live in conflict with them.
