Talking Makes You Happier
In the world we live in today, it is so easy to stay to ourselves. In fact, isn’t that what we do best? With the technological advances, we keep our heads buried down into our computers, smartphones, or other devices. As shocking as this may sound, studies prove that talking to strangers makes us so much happier.
It is said that talking to total strangers makes you a happier person because through that connection you are given new perspective that could add meaningful experiences to your life.
You may not know this, but humans by nature have social brains, social hormones, and social cognition. Due to the way that we are made, connecting with others does increase happiness.
Think about all the interactions you’ve had recently that left you feeling inspired. Choose to acknowledge someone else with your attention the next time you deem it fit to start a conversation with a stranger. You will leave that conversation with an abundance of happiness to keep you going throughout your workday.
