Social wellness refers to how we interact with others and the relationships we have. Social wellness involves building healthy, nurturing and supportive relationships as well as fostering a genuine connection with those around you. Maintaining an optimal level of social wellness allows you to develop assertive skills and become comfortable with who you are in social situations. Surrounding yourself with a positive social network increases your self-esteem and enables you to create boundaries that encourage communication, trust and conflict management.
