4 Simple Steps to Make a Difference
Human connection is important to our well being.
We lose sight of this when we ignore those who are right in front of us.
We have all checked out from a purchase while we were on our cell phone,disregarding the clerk. As cell phones have become a way of life, we ignore and discount who is helping us.
We do not realize the impact this has on ourselves and others.
Each day we encounter someone helping us- the cashier in the store, the bagger, the server at the restaurant, the toll booth attendant. Each one is an opportunity for human connection.
Looking someone in the eye is a way of acknowledging their presence as another human being.
It is a simple, easy way to relate to another person and has a powerful impact.
Try this next time you are at the check- out line, or toll booth.
- Put your phone away if you are on line, or turn down your radio if you are in a car.
- Turn and look at the person in the eye.
- Thank them.
- Wish them a nice day
It only takes a moment and the rewards will trickle throughout the day.
