Social wellness is being able to enjoy spending time with others. It includes acknowledging the value of all people while recognizing that differences do enrich our lives. Showing respect for others, developing close friendships, being civil, and having empathy for people are all components of this. Even when in a stressful academic environment, we need to have time for leisure, time to nurture social connections, and time to practice healthy behaviors.
