How do connections create purpose?

People have a powerful need to relate with others. Feelings of belonging are essential to maintaining a healthy environment, meaningful relationships and personal wellness.


People are wired for connection. When you enjoy interactions with friends, multiple brain networks activate, influencing memories, strengthening neural pathways, elevating your mood and decreasing your stress response.


  • Be thankful for how friends and loved ones enrich your life.
  • Listen to others with empathy, being present in the moment.
  • Savor small moments that offer chances to create or restore connections.
  • Take time to nurture and grow the most important relationships in your life.
