Relationship (re-la-tion-ship, noun): An emotional or other connection between people.


I have always prioritized my relationships, from little on.  I grew up living next door to my grandmother and seeing her every day.  I wrote letters to friends I met at summer camp.  I cried when friends moved away.  And now that I have my own family, I’m focused on spending the time I need with my husband and kids to feel whole.  And science tells me that it’s not just fun to have strong relationships, but it’s also a really important indicator of longevity ( has lots of great info about this).  When I think about my relationships and what commitments I want to make, here are some of the questions I ask:

  • Who are the most important people in my life, and am I seeing them often enough?
  • Am I able to be present, and give the people around me what they need from me (are my relationships 2-way streets)?
  • Am I able to do things that support other parts of my well-being (exercise, food, mind, work) with other people?
  • Are my connections diverse (in age, experience, world view, etc)?

What relationship questions are important to you as you put together your wellfesto?
