May 27, 2022

Ben Mumme is the founder, curator, and podcast host of the Living Your Greatness Podcast. The purpose of the podcast is to inspire millions of people across the world to achieve greatness and enhance their overall personal well-being. 

Living Your Greatness is becoming the go-to resource that CEOs, elite athletes, professional coaches, and entrepreneurs rely on to upgrade themselves. The podcast helps you master the best of what other people have already figured out.

Ben starts off the episode by defining what is social wellness. He explains that social wellness is about nurturing ourselves, others and our relationships. It consists of not only balancing our own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health but also actively participating as an interdependent piece of the bigger puzzle of humankind. As we care about our personal connections, we also care about the greater good of society, including our communities and the environment.

Social wellness involves openly communicating needs, feelings, thoughts and desires to those we trust, and actively listening with empathy when they share with us. It involves engaging in and enjoying positive interactions with other people in work and leisure and building and maintaining meaningful friendships, intimate relationships and professional connections.

Ben discusses why social wellness is so important. People who have healthy relationships, and a strong social network tend to live longer and respond better to stress. One of the biggest benefits of having good social wellness is the presence of a social support network. This network can be close friends and family members to turn to when you are in need or in a crisis situation. Your support system can offer assistance, perspective and insight into a situation that may have caused your judgment to become clouded.

Ben shares 14 ways to cultivate social wellness:

  1. Disconnect to connect
