A GREATER SOCIAL NETWORK LEADS TO GREATER SUPPORT LEVELS.

When you are under stress or in adverse situations who do you most likely speak to for reassurance?

Friends, family and partners?

YES.

However, support doesn’t just come in this form – it also comes from our whole network of indirect social interactions.



Each person in our social network can provide something uniquely different. This will create an overall supportive framework.

1. EMOTIONAL SUPPPORT 

This comes in the form of affection.
Love, care, empathy, physical touch including hugs, hand shakes & pat on the backs. 

This comes from personal relationships & connections.

2. ESTEEM SUPPORT 

This come in the form of CONFIDENCE and ENCOURAGEMENT.
Having people actually believe in you, your abilities and what you can achieve gives you confidence and belief.

 3. INFORMATATIVE SUPPORT  
This involves discussing ideas and not that of events and people:



The ability to share information and give advice can come from close or distant friends.

It enhances KNOWLEDGE and IDEAS.

4. TANGIBLE SUPPORT 

The ability to seek advice and have a service delivered to you or them to help so that you and them can grow.



i.e. lunch dates, financial advice & providing job opportunities or ideas.

5. COMPANIONSHIP 

This is a sense of social BELONGING
A sense of MATESHIP
Whilst engaging in activity

Being involved with friends, families, partners, community and mostly a group of different people from the network around you.



 Supportive people tend to live longer, have higher productivity and inoculate life stresses.


So I ask you this question…do you have enough social support around you?

If you do – fantastic. 
If not there are different ways to get out of your comfort zone to do this.
