Reach out and touch someone.
I really should call her. I wonder what he’s doing these days. I should to invite them to dinner…
So many good intentions, so little time. And you know what that’s called? Poppycock. A little time is all it takes to connect with someone special. A quick phone call, a few lines by email, hand-delivering some homemade cookies. There are plenty of ways to surprise a friend or loved one with a bit of meaningful connection. Do it today.
You aren’t just doing something for someone else, you’re helping yourself—to feel happier. (Well hey, if there’s something in it for me….) According to Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project, due out in 2009, socializing boosts your mood whether you’re a social being or the shy, introverted type.
