Kindness Advent Calendar: December 8, 2022 (Day 8)
Reconnect With Someone Special❤️
Welcome to Day 8 of your Kindness Advent Calendar! Throughout December, we will be providing you with your daily act of kindness through our Kindness Advent Calendar! Come and celebrate the holiday season as we are kind all December long.
In the process of cultivating and nurturing relationships with friends and family, we also nurture ourselves. Of course, social well-being is just one integral element of overall wellness, but it matters tremendously. At least, we are starting to understand that better now.
Relationships and social wellness are critical components of our mental and physical health. We need a strong social network to provide support through hardships and everyday challenges. Not only that, but good social wellness helps us to be more resilient and respond better in the face of stress.
Human beings thrive on connection and having a sense of belonging. That said, it is also not always easy for us to go back to how things were. It's time for us to reconnect but use this as an opportunity to reassess and ease back in mindfully.
Friends are how we manage our daily lives and how we make sure not to go insane. Over the years, we lose touch with friends that may have moved away or just lost connection with them.
Reach out to someone you haven't seen in a while and schedule a time to catch up over a coffee and have a holiday get-together (or a video call if they are far away). Remind them how much they mean to you.
"When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things, not the great occasions, give off the greatest glow of happiness."
