10. HEALTHY LIFESTYLES

(2) SOCIAL SUPPORT

Good relationships among coworkers, friends, and family are proven to assist in the avoidance of both physical and mental illness. Social resources are important in enjoying good times and enduring bad times. While benefits can be found in solitude and self-reflection, good social support provides effective means for coping with daily stress. Communication between people increases efficiency for problem solving and brainstorming ideas for confronting each day’s frustrations and strains. 

By talking through issues we can:

* Gain perspective.

* Confront difficult-to-accept issues.

* Examine alternatives, allowing more choices.

* Enjoy increased possibilities for success and achievement.
