By Olugbade Tolulope

The importance of building healthy relationships cannot be underestimated in this life. It might be through new technologies, outdoor activities, or interaction with other people; nurturing relationships is one of the most fulfilling pursuits in life. It is so important that you need to be intentional about it.

Building healthy relationships with other people reduces the rate of depression and suicide.

People who build healthy connections, in form of relationships could easily reach out to others whenever they are in a dilemma. Besides, they have higher self-esteem, greater empathy for others, and also cooperation.

 When you are socially connected with the right people, your emotional and physical wellbeing is positive.

When it comes to connection, it is not mandatory you have a million friends or be an extrovert. Rather, it’s an intimacy that matters in all of the connections you have and your ability to maintain them,  that makes all of the difference to the quality of your life.

 In nurturing connection, you have to be with the right people and also know the limit within yourself.

In this article, you will learn three significant ways by which you can build and maintain stronger connections.

1: Give connections the time and attention needed: It is easy to get lost in everything from your work to responsibilities but it is important to carve out space for people who have an impact on you. You should make the act of connecting a priority.

2: Make things happen: Don’t shy away from being the ones who make things happen. Drifting apart happens when less of an effort is made. See connecting as an opportunity to engage a part of who you are. You can seek out connections in any way that is unique to you. Being open to others is a gift you could give to people.

3: Be kind to people: You might be busy and have a tight schedule but out of that little time, reach out to friends especially during this difficult period. Ask questions and also show an active interest in what another person is going through. This gives you the opportunity to create deeper bonds and also gain perspective on things going on in your own life.

Try to adopt an energetic attitude toward creating opportunities for connection.
