I'm feeling SOCIAL

Turn up the opportunities to connect with others—empathy and compassion foster well-being.

Your social network is worth cultivating. When you need something, they got your back. And vice-versa. We learn from each other, cry and laugh together, and basically see ourselves more clearly in the process. If you identify as an introvert, you can honor that in social/group settings by communicating it and by participating as much or as little as what feels right for you.
