Given that this weekend is longer than usual, we thought it best to have an exercise that encourages social interaction with other people. But, as you may have guessed by now, to truly generate a sense of connectivity, you need to do a bit more than just be in the presence of others; you need to be able to relate, engage with and often depend on others, to create that sense of companionship. That’s why this week we want you to take advantage of that added time we have with other people to get creative and undertake a task that means you work towards a group goal.
This could be cooking up a group meal, tidying up the garden as a couple, playing a game of football with friends or maybe even just a virtual family quiz. By committing yourselves to get a group task done together, you create more opportunities to let other people in. The rapport that emerges when you rely on a group to achieve a goal, helps you to feel connected to those around you as you strive to achieve something you all share a mutual interest in.
