The point of having a Blog is not only to share your voice with the world, but to grow an active online community. That’s why I have set up a built-in members area - so that readers like you can easily sign up to become members of my blog.
What is community and why is it important?
We need other people in our lives to function. The more like minded people we can fill our every day lives with, the more that our lives become a waking dream! They say we are the sum of the five people we hang out with the most. Who are you GROWNG into?
Make sure you are engaging in REAL LIFE communities as well, not just online/virtual.
It's important for us and our children & extended families to build these connections and it is essential for healthy mental and emotional functioning, too!
Here’s how to do it:
Limit your screen time. Get offline more often! (Use an app to help you if need be)
Volunteer in your community or for a cause that is close to your heart
Make a date to meet an old or new friend for coffee and practice active listening
