The Importance Of Human Connection.

Us humans are naturally social creatures; we are biologically, physically and spiritually wired to belong. Similar to the relationships that we have with ourselves, our relationships with other is important to achieve happiness and fulfilment – having meaning and purpose in the everyday.

With what’s been going on in the world recently, as well as the past couple of years, we are all in need of real connection more than ever, and the profound effects of both social and human connectivity shouldn’t be overlooked. 

In today’s blog post, I’ve written a few things that we as humans can do to vibe with other humans and feel the benefits of humanity in our everyday lives.

Connect one on one

Communicating and having conversations with people are both essential parts of our lives as well as going hand in hand. A large group dynamic is very different to a one-on-one conversation, even though both can provide fulfilment of human connection, one on one time naturally invites empathy and openness. It’s also a great opportunity to dig deeper into topics, like asking depth life questions and genuinely listening to one another’s answers, compared to only talking the surface-level small talk.

Open your heart

Connecting with people isn’t always an easy or comfortable experience and sometimes feel as though you are at your most vulnerable and that requires a lot of self-observation – which means feeling everything!

Willing to be more open with you pain and telling you story, not only does it promote healing and personal growth, it also encourages other’s to do the same. 

Put yourself out there

Putting yourself out there can feel daunting, especially when you open yourself up to criticism or judgments, but by finding a community of people with similar interests is a great way to nourish your soul.

We often talk about the power of NO but what about the power word YES? Push yourself outside out of your comfort zone, and sign up for a book club or running club. There is no shame in wanting to belong to a community, we’re all hard-wired for connection. 

Be your beautiful authentic self

Let’s be real, you won’t feel a connection with everyone that you meet and that is okay. Let go of the pressure to be who you like you should be and instead embrace who you are. When we’re true to ourselves, we are then much more comfortable with being vulnerable, showing all parts of us and creating relationships simple based on honesty, trust and respect. 

Be open minded

A long-lasting human connection doesn’t just happen overnight, it takes hard work and a lot of time and commitment to building trust and understanding. It also takes two – people with similar courage to be imperfect for the long haul.
