June 2014: Financial & Social Wellbeing
Keeping Up with the Jones!
Welcome to the June issue of TotalWellbeing! This month we will conclude our examination of financial wellbeing while taking a closer look at our social wellbeing. This connection between these two concepts is a subtle yet incredibly powerful force that has a profound effect on our social connections, behavior, and even how we form assumptions about others we may or may not know. This effect can help bring some people together while creating tough social barriers between others, for examples of this see The Connection, below.
Now last month we had the usual barrage of information coming to the MINES blog, so just in case you missed anything let’s review. First up, an eye-opening experience of one of our team members inspired a post from Dr. Robert Mines highlighting the importance of compassion. Next up our organizational psychology team shared some inspiring words helping you make the most of your time. Finally, our expert case management team proved once again the power of resilience and that everyone has the power to bounce back.
As we move into summer we have much more to talk about. To stay on top of it all please visit our blog, lets us know what you think, and while you’re at it don’t forget to follow our brand new LinkedIn showcase pages.
To your total wellbeing,
The MINES Team
Financial & Social Wellbeing
|The relationship between your social wellbeing and financial wellbeing is the most obvious when you look at social circles. While this may not always be the case, more often than not people tend to associate themselves with others that have a similar financial standing. This can have negative social consequences when higher earning people look at lower income people as inferior, or conversely, when people view those that earn more than they do as pretentious or “snobby.” Celebrity and political social circles are excellent, yet extreme, examples of when financial and social status collide creating closed off sections, or sub-cultures, within our population.|
