#18 / Enjoy Yourself
The website Brewminate was telling us, back in 2016, that "talking with the occasional stranger can have surprising benefits to your well being."
A little more recently, respected pundit David Brooks, who writes columns for The New York Times, told his readers that "talking to strangers can be a lot more enjoyable than you expect." In fact, Brooks indicates, unless you are talking to strangers on a regular basis, "Your Social Life Is Not What It Should Be."
That famous Gary Patton blog, "We Live In A Political World," has consistently propounded the idea that "Talking To Strangers" has immense benefits, both personal and political.
So, read what Brewminate and Brooks have to say, and consider this brief blog posting another reminder.
Start talking to strangers!
