What is Social Wellness Month? Well, I’ll tell you! Social Wellness Month is celebrated in the Month of July each year and promotes social well-being. The goal of Social Wellness Month is to encourage individuals to nurture their social relationships. These social relationships may look like family, friends, significant others or even getting involved in your local community.
Social wellness is a crucial part of our human nature and society. Social wellness is directly linked to both physical and mental well-being. Lack of healthy companionship has been linked high cholesterol and higher levels of stress. So, our social life is a very important part of our overall wellness!
