July is Social Wellness Month
Social wellness is about building relationships so we have a reliable and healthy support network. As communication becomes increasingly digital and detached, and families remain small, social isolation becomes a greater risk as we age. Social isolation can shorten life the way cigarette smoking, blood pressure, and obesity do.
Do you know someone who is isolated and lacking social support? Are you on a path of increasing isolation yourself? Get proactive or learn how. Refresh your engagement skills and see a counselor if needed. Start with the book Lasting Love: The 5 Secrets of Growing a Vital, Conscious Relationship.
