The surprising benefits of talking to strangers

Human connectedness and not being judged

I love this article from the BBC website on the benefits of talking to strangers.

It’s one of the things I really enjoy doing – it’s a habit that I’ve inherited from a long line of ‘those who like to connect’. I’ve found that even just the briefest connection has a positive impact on my day and my sense of wellbeing.

Travelling on the underground with my dog always ups the level of interaction, especially in infamous chat-free London. Somehow an animal offers us permission to talk.

I’d love to hear more stories about the benefits of talking to strangers…
