How to Win Friends and Socially Connect

Have you felt lonely over the last couple of years? The world has gone digital and through a pandemic. I think it’s all too easy to have drifted from friends and loved ones that you may have seen on a more regular basis.

But here’s the secret: fulfilling relationships can add years to your life.

When we have good relationships with others, we can not only lift each other up – helping get through the rough days – but we can quite literally have a longer lifespan and improved quality of life.

You might be feeling a bit rusty though. After all, making friends can feel harder the older and more set in our ways we get.

So learn how to break out of your shell with the classic How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.

Love People and Communicate Better

One of the bedrock principles in maintaining solid friendships is to communicate better. We need to know that the people in our lives care for us and will be there for us when we need them.

If we don’t know how to communicate, it can often lead to even the best of friends drifting apart.

Originally published in 1936, this book isn’t just for those who want to improve their professional lives. It can quite literally help you to make new friends and improve your current relationships so they’re more fulfilling on both sides.
