Connecting with Others

		

Connecting with others is the single most important thing we can do for our happiness.

When we’re with other people, we feel more positive emotions, which leads to greater happiness. When we’re happier, we have better relationships. This in turn leads to more positive emotions…and being on an “upward spiral” of well-being and happiness.
