As 2022 approaches, many people struggle to find a resolution that motivates them that they haven’t already tried.
Resolve To Spend Quality Time Together
After a worldwide period of isolation, human connection is essential more than ever. Quality time, one of the five languages of appreciation, is essential to all humans for healthy living. Did you know that research shows lack of fellowship can be more harmful to your health than obesity, smoking, and high blood pressure? Further, Social connection can lower anxiety and depression, help us regulate our emotions, lead to higher self-esteem and empathy, and improve our immune systems. So rather than the old “spend more time with people you love” cliché, consider improving the quality of that time.
For homeowners, this goal can start with renovating your sitting area, so guests know where they can habitually spend time with you. There’s no better place to do this than on your patio or deck!
