Studies: We’re feeling lonelier and more disconnected than the generation before us. Here two tips to help you connect more:
1) Don’t take photos, just look.
Taking a photo seems like a good idea to preserve a memory. First of all, news photographer will tell you that they often feel distance from the events they document as they are looking through a lens.
In conclusion, putting a camera between you and the event or subject will distance you from it. To truly connect, put away the camera and enjoy yourself.
2) Meet friends in person instead of on Facebook.
No matter how much fun it is to post statuses and chat online, there is something about human contact that just can’t be replaced.
Take a break from your phone and computer, switch it all off, put it away and go meet a friend for a nice, long chat over a cup of coffee.
