Have you ever felt yourself leaning away from relationships when things are hard? This tendency to pull away from partners, spouses, and friends leads to severe isolation which is a gateway to depression, anxiety and stress. This episode discusses how important it is to lean in towards relationships in life as they are a buffer against mental health issues.
It is important to choose better, more meaningful interactions with people and to engage in socialization even when it is a by-product of another activity such as learning to lift weights or attending a yoga class. There is kindness in the community and having real connections with people can lead to further accepting and understanding or own inner reactivity to inputs.

Dr. Jonice Webb has written several books on this topic called 'Running on empty' in which the types of parenting styles impact the child. Click here for more information on her book.
