Social - the ability to establish, relate, and connect with positively with other people (family, friends, co-workers, etc.)

Having a supportive social network, contributing to society, and valuing cultural diversity.
The social dimension encourages contributing to one’s environment and community. It emphasizes the interdependence between others and nature. As you travel a wellness path, you will become more aware of your importance in society as well as the impact you have on multiple environments. You will take an active part in improving our world by encouraging healthier living and initiating better communication with those around you. You will actively seek ways to preserve the beauty and balance of nature along the pathway as you discover the power to make willful choices to enhance personal relationships, important friendships, and build a better living space and community. Social wellness follows these tenets:

  • It is better to contribute to the common welfare of our community than to think only of ourselves.
  • It is better to live in harmony with others and our environment than to live in conflict with them.
