What’s a support network? It’s any group of people who catch you when you fall; who provide love, affection, and laughter; who help you perform better at your job; or who simply are your go-to friends.
Best of all, having a robust support network eases stress, which is ultimately good for your brain.
Today we’d like you to make a mental list: who is your support network? Whom would you call in case of emergency? Who is the person who makes you laugh the most? Who provides empathy and care? Who’d bring you the chicken soup if you were sick? To whom would you bring chicken soup?
Take stock of your support network. If you have a good one already, great. If you don’t have a good support network, this week we’d like you to figure out how to grow and improve your social safety net.
