The Power Of The Pack: Rescue and Psychotherapist Anna Mathur provide expert advice on nurturing female connections and boosting your emotional wellbeingNorth Andover, MA | It’s not a new concept; having a strong support network is a vital tool for maintaining your mental health and wellbeing. We’re social creatures and our relationships and connections are as fundamental as ensuring we look after our physical health, yet, for many, we don’t afford ourselves the same amount of time and effort to build these support networks.

For many, friends are the family you’re able to choose — invaluable sources of soulful understanding and connection, and vital for keeping us feeling grounded and supported. Yet, in a digital age where connections are seemingly all too easy to make, why is it that so many women feel like they are trying to juggle everything on their own?

Psychotherapist Anna MathurRescue®, the world’s No.1 Stress & Sleep relief brand1, has partnered with Psychotherapist and best-selling author, Anna Mathur, who has shared her top tips on how to find and cultivate a close female network, and how these connections have been crucial to her own success in life as a mother, psychotherapist and author.

  1. Share the burden

    Sharing your feelings with the right people doesn’t turn you into a burden; it can actually feel like a privilege! Think of a time someone you care about opened up to you; how did it feel? I’ll bet their choice to confide in you made you feel closer to them, as vulnerability and openness are far more likely to grow and nurture good friendships than challenge them.

  2. Get together

    While the digital world allows us to stay in touch with our friends easily, there’s nothing quite like getting together in real life. Text messages and voice notes are always better than nothing; however, they cannot replace the richness and quality of the connection we get when being in the physical presence of another person. So, set a date on the calendar to meet up, and notice how you feel when you leave that time, compared to how you feel at the end of a brief exchange of text or WhatsApp messages.

  3. Choose your 2-3

    We have more ‘contacts’ than ever before and have never been so connected to so many people! Yet how many people do you feel truly connected to? Who would you call if you needed help or whose shoulder would you lean on if everything felt like too much? I encourage my clients to have 2-3 people in their lives to whom they can turn. Choose those who have historically been kind and supportive of you, and make a conscious effort to nurture those relationships and keep in touch.

  4. Take small steps of openness

    It can feel like you’re stepping into unchartered territory sometimes when you say anything more than ‘I’m okay, thanks’ to certain friends. You don’t need to rip off the vulnerability band aid, but I would recommend nudging the parameters of your comfort zone by giving a little more information each time a friend asks how you are. You might say, ‘I’m okay, just having a tough day.’ See how your friend responds. If they respond kindly, you might share a little more next time.

  5. Find your fun

    When we share experiences with a friend, we make new memories. What do you both enjoy doing together and how might you schedule it in? Sitting down for a good old chat is good, but enjoying an activity removes any pressure or intensity from conversation, and you might find yourself sharing new insights!
