Part 4 already?! Must be nearly Christmas...!
This week is all about connecting. Connecting with the people around you, whether that's family, friends, colleagues, neighbours or someone else. Building these connections will have such a great impact on your sense of well-being and the support you feel; it can really help to enrich your life every single day.
How to do it though... It doesn't have to be a grand gesture, or overly friendly/creepy. Start with a smile! Saying hello to people, asking how they are, listening to the answer (rather than jumping in with stories about you!), or sending a quick message to someone you haven't seen in a while, just to say hi and that you're thinking about them. And, if you're so inclined, giving a hug, holding hands, or putting an arm around someone can boost well-being further - according to research, human touch can very quickly bring stress levels down.
Invest time and energy in developing them, for your own and others' good. We're social animals and we all need varying levels of connection to thrive.
And if all else fails, watch 'Only Connect'!
