Today I want to write about socializing. I have spoken to a few clients about how important it is to be social as a human being. I often share with students and clients that you can diaper and care for a baby’s biological needs, but an infant will still die due to lack of socialization.
We are biologically wired to require socialization so much so that, we can die due to a lack of it. That’s profound to me, especially on the heels of the pandemic.
So many have been inside their homes and not socializing with others and it’s had a huge impact on mental health.
Today, I am going to challenge you all to get out and walk with the intention of being social. Put a smile on your face and get ready to wave hello to others that you see. Share a positive remark with a few of them to set them on a positive path too.
We often prioritize exercise and eating right, but socializing should also be included in this list. We need it just as much at the other two.
