We are celebrating the 85th birthday of the Harvard Happiness Study and the only thing they are talking about is the power of human connection.
What do you think is the most important thing for your heath?
Many of you will automatically say nutrition, sleep, exercise...
But in fact, above these all, it is the frequency and quality of your relationships - that starts with your relationship with yourself, your partner, your family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues, the barista at your local coffee shop. There are lots of circles that go bigger and bigger
They are all important, even single connections with complete strangers have a positive impact on your wellbeing.
Your relationships are front and center of a happy and healthy life.
Loneliness is actually as bad for your health as smoking and obesity! The World Health Organisation actually declared that the main cause of depression is loneliness
One easy way to beat loneliness and trick you brain into feeling more connected to yourself and the world around you is to practice Loving Kindness meditation.
I hope you enjoy this Meditation. Let me know how you find the experience, send me an email [email protected].
