Social Connection

Social Connection

No man is an island, right?

This month I want to get you thinking about who in your social network provides you support.

Hi AwesoMErs,

That support can and probably will look different for all of us. The important thing is that we find the support and the connections we have in our communities meaningful.

Because when we have meaningful connections with other, we actually live longer!

Social connections can be found at home, in the workplace, friends, family, church, sports, volunteer groups, even online. Whether your find people who provide you with meaning and a sense of belonging.

It’s such an important part of our health and well-being that the New Zealand Government’s Ministry of Social Development uses social connected-ness as one of it’s key indicators of the health of the country and measures it regularly.

If you’re keen to find out more and work through some challenges to build your own social connections then our latest installment in The Resilience Toolkit eCourse Module 7: Social Connectionis for you.

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”

Next month, I want to continue building on our social connected-ness and talk about what the research says about communicating effectively and positively with others. It’s much easier than you might think!

See you then!
