It's important to be selfless and empathetic. These are often things that are overlooked because we are "too busy" trying to get to work on time or wanting to get everything on our to-do list accomplished. There are endless reasons for why we aren't more aware of others in our lives. I think in order to have good, full-hearted relationships, we can't take people for granted. Here's a short list of ideas that can help you do that.
1. Buy a coworker or a friend you haven't talked to in a while a coffee or tea! Take a break for a bit to catch up and ask questions about their life.
2. Make the effort to give a friend a call on the phone: Not a "How ya doin?" text but a phone call to actually see how they are doing.
3. Invite a friend over for dinner on a weeknight. You both have to eat, right? So why not switch it up and make dinner for two and catch up?
