Call a friend

In the hustle and bustle of our everyday life, our "go-to" way to communicate is often WhatsApp, even for our dear friends ... who at most get two-liners from us. When last did you actually have a telephone conversation with one of your old friends? It doesn't have to be a deep and meaningful conversation. Call and share a memory or funny moment. Laughter is uplifting for all of us, and it even gives us a little dopamine boost.

 
 

So what, now what? Use the 'dead' time while driving home, or put your phone on speaker mode while making supper and enjoy a heartfelt connection with a friend. Make the call. After all, that's what your mobile device was initially designed for.
