Time To Talk Day 1st February.
When Last Did You Actually Talk to Someone? It Is Time To Talk
When was the last time you actually talked to someone? Not the regular small talk that we exchange day-to-day with colleagues, peers and acquaintances. For some, we may not remember the last time we had a genuine conversation about our emotions and lives; and for those who remember, it may have been a long time ago. Being able to talk openly about how you feel, life events and thoughts is consequential in promoting mental health.
Nonetheless, with the spiraling levels of loneliness in the UK since before the COVID-19 lockdown, many people are deprived of social connections that could be helpful when things get overwhelming and they need to share with someone. Finding someone who is trustworthy, open-minded and willing to listen is no longer a hurdle with Let’s Connect.
