According to the National Wellness Institute (1976), the social wellness dimension recognizes the importance of human relationships and encourages contributing to one’s environment and community. As you travel a social wellness path, you’ll become more aware of your importance in society as well as the impact you have on multiple environments. You’ll take an active part in improving our world by encouraging healthier living and initiating better communication with those around you. You’ll 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 and important friendships, and build a better living space and community.
Social wellness follows these tenets:
It is important to contribute to the common welfare of our community.
It is important to live in harmony with others and our environment.
