I think if there were ever a more perfect time to talk about connection, this is probably it! These last 12 months have been tough work and I think many of us have just gone into survival mode in some senses, especially in terms of being limited with our movement and often being separated from our friends and loved ones for long periods of time. Choosing to improve the quality of your connections (and I explore how to do that in this episode) can help you to establish and maintain better relationships regardless of whether or not you’re stuck in Lockdown 42: Electric Boogaloo. So this week I’m talking about what connection is, why it matters for your mental health, and how to improve the quality of your connections with loved ones and strangers alike.
