Social Wellness Tips

How can I improve my social wellness?

1)      Examine your social life now and identify areas or people that are detrimental to your Wellness. Consider removing yourself from these situations or explore putting boundaries in place to protect yourself, if need be seek professional help to assist you.

2)      Get to know your personal needs and pursue things and people who nurture those needs.

3)      Make time to actively seek members of your family or friends who will love and support you.

4)      Join a club or group that interests you. It would be a great opportunity to find a new hobby.

5)      Form your own group and hand-pick individuals who will have a positive impact on your life.

6)      Become a part of a healthy spiritual environment.

7)      Recognize that social wellness is founded in face-to-face contacts. Do not rely solely on online community interaction.

8)      Practice self disclosure. Self disclosure is the conscious and unconscious act of revealing more about yourself to others. This may include, thoughts, feelings, aspirations, goals, failures, successes, fears, dreams as well as your likes and dislikes.

Typically, a self-disclosure happens when we initially meet someone and continues as we build and develop our relationships with people. As we get to know each other, we disclose more information about ourselves. If one person is not willing to “self-disclose” then the other person may stop disclosing information about themselves as well. Social Wellness cannot be achieved without self disclosure. Self-disclosure should always be reciprocal and appropriate.

Social Wellness is fun, enjoy life, enjoy being you.
