It is the season for giving, so give attention to someone who needs it. Ask them about their holiday plans, New Year’s resolutions, best holiday purchase – it doesn’t matter what as long as you take the time to listen and connect. The joy of giving is what comes back, forgetting about your own troubles and making someone else feel special.
Remember, when you are socializing, turn to someone you haven’t spoken to yet and give them your attention. It will do you both some good.
