Social Wellness

Social wellness involves authentic interpersonal relationships. Striving for wellness in this dimension includes connecting with individuals in a way that is deep and meaningful. Strong social wellness means one has strong, supportive, interdependent relationships where each person genuinely cares for the other. Mindfulness in the social dimension is about the quality of relationships, not the quantity.

As humans, we have interdependence in our communities. By working to have healthy connections and communication, we enhance friendships and relationships that are vital to our Social Wellness (National Wellness Institute).
