Daily Relationships Challenge
The Mental Health Foundation have recently launched their Daily Relationships Challenge - for the one-off price of a standard network rate text, they'll send you a relationship tip every single day.
I thought maybe some of us could could sign up and then discuss the tips they send out, and also how we find doing it? You just need to text TIPS to 70300.
I signed up today and got the first tip:
#1: Put time aside to nurture important relationships and friendships. Today, call a friend you haven't spoken to in more than a month.
I found this one quite interesting because I tend to find time to interact with those close to me fairly regularly. That and, to be honest, I don't have the energy to maintain relationships with people that I speak to that infrequently. Plus, I tend to forget to respond to messages... :rolleyes:
That said, I do have a couple of friends whom I don't speak to too regularly and have (in the past) gone a few months without speaking to, only to pick up where we left off and not have it affect anything. I think those types of relationships with people are quite strong.
What do you guys think? :chin:
All behaviour is a need trying to be met.
