Socialising can be extremely therapeutic, when we socialise a lot with other people we enjoy being with we tend to feel happier, which is why it is ironic that sometimes when we could really benefit from other peoples company, we do the opposite and shut ourselves away. Our own sense of sociability is diminished through depression, sadness, anger etc, yet if we were to actually spend time with people we like we would gain far more from it.
Socialising teaches us new things and gives us new perspectives about our problems. The old saying, ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’ is very true, when we talk to someone about our problems wh tend to find a solution to them, because it stimulates our brains in ways that we can’t on our own.
When you socialise and share your knowledge and experience with others you will find they do the same for you, it’s human nature and you never know what you will learn along the way.
Meeting friends, family etc for a coffee or even phoning them to say hi are just as important as talking to them because you need help to find a solution to a problem.
So call or visit a friend, someone in your family you haven’t seen for a while and socialise. You never know what a positive impact it could have on their day, their lives by doing this really simple thing.
Remember keep the same positive frame of mind inside as well as what you show outwardly, this makes socialising so much more fun and beneficial for everyone.
