Amy Baglan: What is Social Wellness?

Fabriq CEO Amy Baglan introduces Wellness 3.0, talking MeetMindful, meaningful connection, social disconnection, and the question: What is social wellness?

Episode Overview

In the very first episode of Wellness 3.0, Amy Baglan, CEO & Co-Founder of Fabriq and MeetMindful, dives into her background, the meaning of “meaningful connection”, the social disconnection epidemic, and what she believes is the emerging third wave of health & wellness — something we like to call social wellness.

“These days, most people find it easier to lock eyes with a screen that with another person, yet we are innately social beings. So what happened? And what can we do about it?”

On the Wellness 3.0 podcast, we’re on a mission to answer that question through a weekly show that explores why we as humans have become more comfortable locking eyes with our devices than with other human beings.

In this episode, Amy takes us back to 1948 when the World Health Organization defined health a bit differently than it does today. Hint: It used to include social well-being!

What we cover:

  • What led her to investigate meaningful connections and start Fabriq
  • The epidemic of disconnection, loneliness, and social isolation and how it’s detrimental to our health
  • Why the third wave of health & wellness has everything to do with our social ties, social health, and community
  • The importance of deepening existing relationships, building strong support systems, and interacting with your community

Each week on Wellness 3.0 we’ll invite guests to help us dig deeper into the many areas of social wellness. We’ll play connectivity games, give you weekly challenges and activities to improve your social wellbeing and discuss everything from volunteering to making new friends as an adult, to finding a sense of purpose and belonging in your community. Join us in ditching disconnection and shifting to social wellness.

This Week’s Guest

Amy Baglan

Your host, Amy Baglan, is a passionate entrepreneur on a mission to bring more meaningful connection into the world. Guided by her belief that relationships are the fastest way to personal growth, she founded MeetMindful for the millions of mindful singles who desire deep, intentional relationships.

She’s now taking the loneliness and disconnection epidemic head-on with a new way of thinking about wellness with the Wellness 3.0 podcast as well as Fabriq, our sister app, designed to help people weave tighter relationships with the people who matter most.

It means deepening our existing relationships, building a stronger more secure support system, and interacting with communities that share our values, and help us feel more purpose and contribution. This is why we’re calling this Wellness 3.0. We want to bring attention to the fact that — just as much as mental and physical health — social health is a big deal.
