Social wellness is the ability to connect with and relate to other people in the world. Because we spend so much of our days working, typically at an environment outside of our homes, it is quite possible that we see our colleagues more often than our spouses, children, friends, and other loved ones in a lifetime.

Getting to know your colleagues at work is not always easy. Whether someone is introverted or just incredibly inundated with a heavy workload, it can be difficult to find the motivation to look up from our computer screens, remove our headphones, or join a colleague for a lunch break.

However, being social is part of human nature and improves our happiness, and if we are spending so much time at work, it is equally important that we socialize with our colleagues outside of the office. So, the next time that you walk to the water cooler or coffee machine, make sure you give a friendly hello to your colleagues – especially now that you know it is good for your health!
